ABSTRACT

The paper presents the results of an experiment devoted to studying attention distribution and switching using eye-tracking technology. The experiment was conducted in two stages. At the first stage (year 2016), 48 students majoring in air traffic control were examined. At the second stage (year 2017), 43 students studying to become civil aviation pilots were involved. Correlation analysis methods and Pearson’s chi-squared test were used.
