Pilot Medical Handbook


Human Factors for Successful Flying.  

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.  

Topics include:  

  •  Assessing and determining personal minimums.  
  • Medical certification questions and answers.  
  • Stress management.  
  • Information for pilots considering LASIK surgery.  
  • Visual illusions and spatial disorientation.  
  • Flying safely with passengers.  
  • Much more!  

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. Soft cover, full-color illustrations, bibliography, 8-3/8" x 10-7/8", 100 pages.
