Effective Approaches to Disorientation Familiarization for Aviation Personnel.
Collins, William E.
Techniques are discussed for providing familiarization of aviation personnel with disorientation problems (dizziness). Procedures are spelled out in detail. Methods of modifying existing equipment as well as an evaluation of available commercial equipment, are presented. The techniques have been used with notable success both at the Civil Aeromedical Institute and in the field. They are relatively inexpensive, effective both for participants and for observers, and readily accepted by fliers as pertinent to the aviation situation. (The report includes charts, photos, and 27 references.) (Author/LY)
