Resumo

In the versatile aviation environment, the pilot’s well-being is a crucial and demanding factor which is directly related to his good performance. Due to the unpressurized and unacclimatized aircraft cabin, light aviation pilots are exposed to many different environmental situations.

Experimental tests were performed, in different scenarios, in order to evaluate physiological reactions, as stress, combined with the flight conditions, as altitude, and how it can highly influence or even compromise the pilot’s response.

The acquisition of flight and physiological data from the aircraft and the pilot, monitoring parameters defined as potential to establish physiological boundaries of each pilot, shows that the stress level can influence the pilot psychophysiological response and, consequently, his performance.
