Eye tracking is often used in aviation to study the pilot’s visual circuits, which are relevant to the first two stages of eye tracking integration 1. However, the sensors can be expensive or difficult to integrate in a cockpit and can be sensitive to light variations. We propose to start studying the movements of the pilot’s head as a proxy of their visual interest, because the sensors are already integrated in many virtual reality setups and are not so expensive. Of course, the data quality can’t be considered as good, because the pilot can move their eyes without moving their head. Therefore, the goal of this study is to qualify the interest of the pilot’s head tracking.
