Suborbital Pilot Ground School Part II

Useful at any level of experience, this ground school video course is excellent both as a preflight instructional tool and as a refresher course for suborbital pilots. This instructional program features David LeFrancois who is the author of “The Suborbital Pilot’s Ground School Manual”. David provides the viewer with an overview of High Altitude Operations.

Subjects Included:

– Space Life Sciences
– Life Support Systems
– Human Factors

Viewers can learn about the oxygen requirements for the human body and how oxygen is processed and used by the body. Hypoxia and trapped gas disorders along with the dangers of increased carbon dioxide levels and hyperventilation are presented. Altered gravity environments that can be experienced by suborbital pilots are described along with the effect on the human body. The topic of vision problems that a pilot can encounter during the various phases of a suborbital flight is included. Space motion sickness and some tips for dealing with it are also provided. Space radiation and the associated health effects are presented.

Life support systems provide humans with an acceptable environment to maintain normal biological functions, to optimize human performance in the hostile environment of space, and to protect against dangers such as toxic exposures or radiation. This video course discusses life support systems as they apply to suborbital flight.

The ground school presents the viewer with human factors topics which include noise and vibration, movements in hypergravity, medical standards & conditioning, as well as pilot decision making and crew resource management.

This DVD contains lots of useful information you may or may not know! An invaluable tool for space pilots.
