Predictive Validity of the Aviation Lights Test for Testing Pilots With Color Vision Deficiencies
Final ReporteBook - 2004
The color filters of the Farnsworth Lantern (FALANT) were changed to meet the FAA's signal color specifications, thereby creating a job-sample color vision test called the Aviation Lights Test (ALT) that is used for secondary screening of air traffic control specialist applicants. The purpose of this experiment was: to determine whether the ALT could be used in place of the FALANT for testing pilots, and whether the altered filters in the ALT improved its predictive validity with the criterion instrument called the signal light gun.
