FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION WASHINGTON D C OFFICE OF AVIATION MEDICINE
Pagination or Media Count:
Data from 13 body measurements and 4 strength tests on 152 female flight attendants are reported herein. The stewardesses are taller x bar 165.8 cm and lighter x bar 54.6 kg than the corresponding age in the civilian population. The strength tests are reported as the average plateau, maximum force, and pound-second force for a two-handed push 110 cm from floor, leg lift 25 cm from floor, back lift 50 cm from floor, and arm lift 100 cm from floor. There are no comparable data in the literature thus, these data can provide a general guideline as to the maximum strength capabilities of the on-line airline stewardess.
