Abstract:

The dark adaptability of pilots crucially affects the quality and safety of their flying exercises. Dark adaptation times are determined from the results of measurements using adaptometers. Using the objective adaptometer Model YAK-I, we have performed the rapid dark adaptation time tests for 1,017 healthy Chinese pilots. Applying statistics for the analysis of our data, we obtained the normal value for dark adaptability.
