Protection and Enhancement of the Senses in Flight

The early days of aviation soon proved that whilst the human body’s special senses were critical to the safe operation of aircraft, “flying by the seat of the pants” was a recipe for disaster. Since then, considerable expertise has been developed in the interpretation of sensory input needed for safe aircraft operation. For example, vision supplies over 80% of the information required to fly an aircraft, and the quality of an aviator’s eyesight is a key issue. New developments in laser eye surgery and new understanding about the role of oxygen in vision have the potential to improve visual performance to levels that are above normal.
