Resumo

Flight safety is a crucial topic in the aviation industry; this research purpose is to study the influence of flight  environmental conditions and pilots’ psychophysiological parameters on task performance, during different flight  situations, considering some of their everyday habits. With the experimental work, we could observe that the  psychological reactions, as stress, combined with the flight conditions, as altitude, can highly influence the human  body physiological response. Such parameters, analysed separately, can even surpass the p hysical and logical  reaction caused by the decrement of the partial pressure of oxygen with altitude.
