Abstract:

INFORMATION ON THE BODY SIZE OF Army aviators is available for the first time in the form of anthropometric measurements. The series of 500 flyers, including both warrant and commissioned officers, represents a sampling of about 10 percent of the Army aviator population. The anthropometric data, consisting of some 40 body measurements, have been analyzed, and are presented in the form of a table of percentile distributions and 82 bivariate charts. These data may now be applied in problems of design, sizing, and tariffing of flight clothing and specialized equipment for Army aviators, as well as in other areas of human engineering which require the use of body size information in aviator-equipment aircraft systems.
