Abstract:

Until recently naval aviators have been subject to an automatic reclassification at age 45 downgrade from Service Group I to III. In January, 1980, the Chief of Naval Operations removed the arbitrary age-based regulations and requested that the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery develop age-free criteria for flight classification of Navy and Marine Corps personnel. The bibliographic abstracts in this report Vol. 2 are the result of a continuing literature search on age-related changes in vestibular functioning. These reports were chosen for review because they represent tests of vestibular function, visual- vestibular interactions, or vestibular-proprioceptive interactions that are related to mechanisms basic to the voluntary control of aircraft motion.
