Pilot performance is increased after alternating hypo- and hypergravity states



Pilot performance is increased after alternating hypo- and hypergravity states



Physiologist 32(1 Suppl): S92



An increase of performance of six experienced pilots in a complex in-flight aerobatics test repeated after a period of alternating zero-hypergravity conditions, lasting for 30 minutes, was observed, if compared with the same test before such exposition. There was no difference in the increase of the pilot performance, if the in-flight test was repeated after a period of rest of the same duration. We conclude that in experienced pilots adaptation to a complex in-flight test remains uninfluenced by alternating zero-hypergravity conditions, realized in a light transport plane. Perhaps adaptation to alternating gravity conditions is implemented better than to full weightlessness in experienced subjects. This is to be proved in real space flights.
