Flight stress and how to overcome it
H Yaghoubi, S Riahi
Abstract:   (10199 Views)
Overstressing impairs mental and physical health and adversely affects the capabilities of the individual. There are two kinds of stress: acute and chronic. While acute stress is transient, chronic stress can be exhausting. The body produces adrenalin in response to stress that causes readiness. Although stress is not a disease by itself, it can predispose to illnesses or worsen the pre existing conditions. There is no universal method to overcome stress. A search in the “Aviation, space and Environmental Medicine” using stress, and flight as keywords revealed that stress can reduce efficacy of pilots in orientation and other duties. Moreover, stressful pilots are more prone to error. While personality has a major role in stress, provision of appropriate relaxing techniques can improve efficacy.
Keywords: stress, flight, pilot
