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.
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.
