Flight psychology at Sheppard Air Force Base.
Aviat Space Environ Med. 1991 Dec; 62(12):1185-8.AS

Abstract

Flight psychology is the application of psychological principles to the unique environment of the aviator in order to enhance training, flight safety, and mission accomplishment. At Sheppard Air Force Base, TX, flight psychology is a cooperative effort between a clinical psychologist and the aeromedical services, with the former acting as a consultant to the latter. The primary focus of the flight psychology program is stress management, including managing the stress response of airsickness, for students in the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training (ENJJPT) program. Psychological assessments of flying personnel, air traffic controllers, and individuals being considered for special duties constitute a valuable contribution to aeromedical services. We present clinical vignettes to illustrate the interaction of the flight psychologist and aeromedical services, and the effect on flying training and flight safety.
