Abstract:

The survey was undertaken to provide up-to-date information on the body measurements of Royal Air Force aircrew. This information is required for cockpit workspace and functional clothing sizing studies. A team of two trained measurers, using a specially designed anthropometric rig, took 63 body measurements of each of 2000 Royal Air Force aircrew between the ages of 18 and 45 at RAF stations in England. These measurements, recorded during an eighteen month period starting in January 1970, are summarized in the form of a percentile table, mean, standard deviation, range and coefficient of variation for each measurement. The statistical summary for each measurement together with a written description of the measuring procedure. The apparatus used is fully described and the organization of the survey is briefly discussed.
