Royal Canadian Air Force seeks to reduce pilot problems


A report from the Royal Canadian Air Force has noted that a number of its pilots who have been flying Griffon helicopters have suffered from neck pain as a result, and are now seeking a solution to the problem. Over 200 pilots and flight engineers were surveyed for the report, which showed that 75 per cent had experienced neck pain, with differing degrees of severity reported. The use of heavy equipment such as night vision goggles was cited as one of the possible causes of neck pain.
