Human centrifuge has numerous innovative uses as a training simulator. In recent years, the centrifuges have been used in oculographcic examinations so as to enable reconstruction of certain pilotage-related elements in simulated conditions. An evident loss of saccade movements was observed while subjecting pilots to  acceleration conditions although the extent of hypergravity was fully controlled and maintained at a constant level by pilots themselves. The preliminary results of the studies are promising and encourage taking up new research in the field.
