Briefing Leaflet

Helicopter Flight Deck Ergonomics

Jan 30, 2018


This Briefing Leaflet expands on IFALPA Position Paper 18POS01 addressing helicopter flight deck ergonomics. Fatigue and physical discomfort have a negative influence on human performance. IFALPA identifies that in helicopter design, crash worthiness has taken precedence over ergonomics. IFALPA supports the importance of crash worthiness, but believes that flight deck ergonomics is equally important.
