Pilot Medical Handbook
Human Factors for Successful Flying
Being a safe pilot requires more than completing flight training and staying current. Full competency comes from the ability of a pilot to develop a keen awareness of the physiological aspects of flying, as well as those that influence workload and fatigue, decision making, and situational awareness. The Pilot Medical Handbook was compiled as a guide for study in these areas. With the Medical Handbook for Pilots Advisory Circular (AC 67-2) long discontinued, this new handbook is the only printed resource available with a collection of applicable FAA and Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) documents, articles and reports.
- Assessing and determining personal minimums
- Medical certification questions and answers
- Stress management
- Information for pilots considering LASIK surgery
- Visual illusions and spatial disorientation
- Flying safely with passengers
- Much more!
Pilots must thoroughly consider the human element and inherent physiological aspects of flight - as well as the machine and weather - if safety is to be maintained. Pilots can use the plentiful information in this handbook to help them make consistent, informed go/no-go and inflight decisions. Soft cover, full-color illustrations, bibliography, 8-3/8" x 10-7/8", 100 pages.
