Accelerating pilot learning with eye tracking data
Steve Bigg was principally responsible for establishing the Advanced Aircraft Simulation Centre (AASC) at the International Test Pilots School (ITPS). The Centre houses over seventeen simulators ranging from helicopters to heavy transport aircraft and three fighter types. Steve has been responsible for the acceptance and commissioning of all these simulators and in developing training sessions in support of a variety of courses.
He was responsible for the development of the multi-cockpit dome simulation and integrated real-time Air Combat Manoeuvering Monitoring and Debriefing facilities in support of the Fighter Weapons Instructor Course (FWIC) and Fighter Lead-in Training (FLIT) courses including Computer Generated Forces red air scenarios for the FWIC. Steve established and supports flight test instruction sessions for the Boeing 787, F/A-18, and F-35 simulators.
Under Steve’s care, the AASC has added mixed- and virtual reality capability on the F/A-18 and F-35 simulators, and a new eVTOL engineering simulator supporting Advanced Air Mobility systems testing. Before joining ITTC, in 2003, Steve created and operated his own Air Combat Flight Simulation Centre which provided him with a deep understanding of how simulation can benefit air combat skills training. Steve holds a Diploma in Computer Electronics Technology and first earned his pilot’s license at age 17.
