A course on aerospace physiology for helicopter operators will be offered at this year’s Heli-Expo in Atlanta, Georgia. This year’s class will be taught on Sunday, March 3, 2019.
The course, taught by one of the industry’s subject matter experts, Dr. Dudley Crosson, will focus on the latest research and developments on some old, some not-so-old, and in many cases, very misunderstood topics that over the years have led to numerous helicopter accidents and pilots' 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 pilot's decision-making process, and finally the inner-workings and physiology behind Spatial Disorientation.
