Abstract:

The report describes an anthropometric survey of U. S. Army aviators conducted at Fort Rucker, Alabama in 1970. Data for 85 body size measurements and for several variables describing the socio-military background of the survey subjects were gathered on a sample of 1482 flying personnel. Statistical summaries are presented for each measurement for the entire sample and for five subseries enlisted men crew chiefs, mechanics, door gunners, warrant officer and warrant officer candidate trainees, warrant officer rated pilots, commissioned trainees, and commissioned pilots. Summary statistics and percentiles for 80 anthropometric indices and for some 73 anthropometric variables computed from the measured dimensions are given, as is the correlation matrix for the measured variables and age.
