While it's clear that we all slow down mentally and physically as we age, Professor Daniel Morrow is looking into ways to help aging pilots perform just as well as their younger counterparts. Dr. Morrow uses a flight simulator and eye tracking equipment to put older pilots through their paces in the hopes of developing strategies and tools to help pilots maintain their flying skills as they age. Morrow is an associate professor at the University of Illinois Institute of Aviation and a faculty member in the Beckman Institute's Human Perception and Performance group.
