Abstract:

Since the previous study of the anthropometric features of naval aircrewmen, the physical and academic requirements for entrance into the flight program have been changed. The present study was undertaken to determine whether these changes combine with changes in the anthropometric features of the population in general to influence certain anthropometric dimensions. The dimensions of the aviation training candidates in this study differed significantly from those reported in the other samples. Possible reasons for these differences include growth of the population in general, characteristics of the samples involved, and different anthropometric and academic requirements for acceptance into the aviation training program.
