French ab initio military pilots are trained to operate a new generation of aircraft equipped with glass cockpit avionics (Rafale, A400M). However gaze scanning teachings can still be improved and remain a topic of great interest. Eye tracking devices can record trainee gaze patterns in order to compare them with correct ones. This paper presents experimentation conducted in a controlled simulation environment where trainee behaviors were analyzed with notifications given in real-time. In line

In addition, preliminary results show that different notifications bring modifications of the visual gaze pattern. Finally we discuss future strategies to support a more efficient pilot training thanks to real-time gaze recording and its analysis.
