Description: Over 70 percent of aviation accidents and incidents are in some way related to human factors -- those hard-to-define but perilous-to-overlook effects of hypoxia, fatigue, self-medication, sleep debt, disorientation, dehydration, ear blocks, airsickness -- the list goes on and on. A safe aircrew, pilot and flight attendant, is not only skilled but self-aware, conscious of how their bodies and minds might work -- or might not -- at any given moment in flight. This book tells pilots and other crew members what they need to know to be fit for flight: How flying and different atmospheres affect the body; how the mind and body react to certain stresses; how trip length and crossing time zones causes fatigue; and how to read the warning signs of incapacitation, however subtle.

Reinhart introduces his readers to the essentials of flight physiology and human factors: how different organs function and what can be done to protect these functions before and during flight. Hypoxia, dehydration, fatigue, vibration, visual illusions, noise, disorientation, jet lag, self-medication, alcohol, smoking, and extremes of heat and cold are among the topics Fit for Flight covers. A handy, easy-to-read manual and an invaluable reference, the book equips pilots and crew members for that most basic requirement for a safe flight: an airworthy crew.
