Basic Flight Physiology
A startling 70% of flight accidents are linked to pilot error, making human factor the subject of intense scrutiny. The definitive text on the interaction of mind and body with the flying environment, this essential second edition is updated and expanded with the latest research and case studies of actual accidents/incidents. New or expanded chapters are included on situational awareness, human factors of automation, CRM, and more. Other topics include atmosphere, altitude physiology, vision, hearing and vibration, disorientation, environmental stresses, and jet lag and fatigue. A separate Instructor's Disk containing practical exercises, course objectives, and test and review questions is available exclusively to academic instructors ordering classroom quantities. Richard O. Reinhart, M.D. (Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an FAA senior aviation medical examiner. A pilot and author, he is also a contributing editor to Business & Commercial Aviation.
