Abstract : The purpose of this monograph was to provide descriptive statistics within the Aviation Epidemiology Data Register (AEDR) of selected variables from an aviator's annual class 2 or class 2A Flying Duty Medical Examination (FDME) that was performed in 1991. Only aviators from a major Army component were considered, active duty, reserve, or National Guard. Descriptive data are presented in tables, which normally are defined by component, age group, and gender. Due to the small number of female aviators, some of the age-group cells are sparsely populated, especially within the reserve component. The data were organized into three areas: laboratory/clinical, vision, and hearing. Within the laboratory/clinical area, age was correlated with increases in mean values and percentages of population with values over a threshold for systolic and diastolic blood pressure, pulse, and cholesterol. Within the vision area, the likelihood of corrective lens use increased with age. For males, visual acuity decreased for both distant and near vision.
