Aerospace physiology and human performance update course at Heli-Expo 2019

Share/Save

The course, taught by Dr Dudley Crosson, will focus on the latest research and developments on some old, some not-so-old, and in many cases very miss-understood topics that over the years have led to numerous helicopter accidents and pilot’s deaths. The course looks at current topics from an operational perspective. Subjects include the deadly side effects of fatigue and sleep deprivation, the dangerous and negative impact of Energy Drinks on flight crews, how stress can destroy a pilots decision making process, and finally the inner-workings and physiology behind Spatial Disorientation.
