AbstractThis study examined pilots’ effectiveness under a false horizon illusion. It has been assumed that visual illusions tends to produce spatial disorientation. Spatial disorientation was analyzed in context of FDI style of perception, efficiency of attention and working memory. 66 military pilots took part in this study (age M=32.25, +/- 6.64; total flying time M=1017.6 hours, +/- 797.60). Efficiency of execution of flight profile has been defined on simulator HYPERION, cognitive processes were researched by means of computer tasks. In conditions of cognitive conflict: visual field - navigational instruments, group of pilots FD were most strongly exposed to disorientation.
