Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Over 70 percent of aviation accidents & 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 & on. A safe aircrew, pilot & flight attendant, is not only skilled but self-aware, conscious of how their bodies & minds might work-or might not-at any given moment in flight. This book tells pilots & other crew members what they need to know to be fit for flight: How flying & different atmospheres affect the body; how the mind & body react to certain stresses; how trip length & crossing time zones causes fatigue; & how to read the warning signs of incapacitation, however subtle. Reinhart introduces his readers to the essentials of flight physiology & human factors: how different organs function & what can be done to protect these functions before & during flight. Hypoxia, dehydration, fatigue, vibration, visual illusions, noise, disorientation, jet lag, self-medication, alcohol, smoking, & extremes of heat & cold are among the topics Fit for Flight covers. A handy, easy-to-read manual & an invaluable reference, the book equips pilots & crew members for that most basic requirement for a safe flight: an airworthy crew. Bookseller Inventory #
