1. A computer apparatus comprising:
at least one processor in data communication with a memory storing processor executable code;
a data storage element in data communication with the at least one processor; and
one or more biometric data recording devices in data communication with the at least one processor; wherein the processor executable code configures the at least one processor to: receive biometric data comprises an eye movement of a pilot from the one or more biometric data recording devices; continuously store the biometric data in the data storage element;
analyze the biometric data to identify indicia of impaired performance including cognitive overload; analyze the stored biometric data over time to identify an individual specific correlation between time on duty and biometric data indicative of impaired performance during specific flight tasks and with respect to an individual duty schedule of the pilot; and initiate a corrective action.
