Abstract : This Aeromedical Handbook is designed to provide aircrews with a more complete understanding of the biological sciences affecting present-day flying. It is not an exhaustive treatment of all the aeromedical factors and aircrews should discuss any questions arising with their own Flight Surgeons. The material is taken almost verbatim from Royal Canadian Air Force Pamphlet 69, 'Fit to Fly', with minor deletions and additions.
