Abstract:

Aviation physical standards are developed to ensure the most qualified personnel are accepted and retained by Naval Aviation. Standards differ significantly between applicants and designated personnel and among the different classes of flight duties. Applicant standards are the most rigorous to ensure that the Navy is investing in a candidate that is capable of completing training and remaining a designated Naval aviator in a physically demanding environment. Medical attrites adversely affect manning requirements, fiscal resources, and the members personal and career development. Designated aviators must meet standards to ensure they and their crew remain safe and able to complete their demanding missions.
