Light aviation and Flight Safety: Physiological Parameters Monitorization
(Comunicação em Conferência)
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.
