Abstract/Description

The problem this study addresses is the uncertainty of the common circumstances that general aviation pilots find themselves in that create a hypoxic state, their symptoms of hypoxia, as well as whether or not that pilot deemed the event to put them in an unsafe flight condition. The results of this study showed not only those that were impacted the greatest by hypoxia, but also a caring concern for reporting these events to better flight physiology training. The key elements for this research were:

  • Level of pilot experience who have experienced hypoxia
  • Reporting statistics
  • Symptoms experienced
  • Suggestions for bettering flight physiology training
