Description

The specialty of aviation medicine is older than the aeroplane itself. Beginning in the year 1803, scientists were making balloon ascents to altitudes above 20,000 feet and suffering symptoms of anoxia.

 

( … ) The invention of the aeroplane brought further medical problems for the human operators.

 

( ... ) Combat flying in the Second World War would not have been possible, and the operation of modern jet aircraft would not be either, without the fundamental research in aviation medicine over the past fifty years* and without the evolution of equipment and techniques to maintain the efficiency of the air crew and passengers.

 

* Since 1923.
