To ensure physical accommodation of humans in aircraft crew stations, aircrew traditionally have been selected on the basis of specific standards. To be effective, these standards must be based on anthropometric limitations imposed by actual crew stations. Evidence suggests this generally is not the case. Instead, selection standards have frequently evolved from 1 aircraft design recommendations, which often bear little relationship to the finished product, or 2 anthropometry of existing aircrew, which ignores the issue.
