TO SEE OR NOT TO SEE: VISUAL ACUITY OF PILOTS INVOLVED IN MIDAIR COLLISIONS

The medical records of airmen involved in midair collisions from 1970 through 1973 were reviewed and compared with two other groups of pilots: (1) pilots involved in other types of accidents and (2) pilots without any accident records. There is nothing in the results to indicate that the pilots with visual corrections are a greater risk.
