Abstract:

The book discusses the design, operation and methods of testing devices which serve to protect a human during flight at high altitudes. There are discussions of such devices as oxygen equipment, high-altitude cabins, clothes and high-altitude space-suits, as well as devices that make possible safe abandonment of the craft during flight. The book is intended for a broad range of engineering-technical workers for the aircraft industry and for the airforce, as well as for pilots and ground personnel engaged in sport and transport flying. It can also serve as an aid for students in the aeronautical departments. Author
