It is now a requirement of both private and commercial pilot syllabus that trainees understand how flying affects them both physically and mentally. This helps reduce the risks of flying and maintains personal fitness, which is essential for pilots. From 1999, a revised European JAR syllabus has introduced new requirements on the subject. This book has been substantially rewritten to take account of these.

The late Ron Campbell, Executive Chairman of AOPA UK, was a member of the ECAC Working Group and JAA Flight Crew Licensing Committee responsible for the harmonization of pilot training and licensing in Europe. Pamela Campbell, who has also contributed to the book, is a former commercial pilot and flying instructor and is currently the International AOPA delegate on the JAA Flight Crew Licensing Committee.Michael Bagshaw is Head of Medical Services for British Airways. He is a current professional pilot, flying instructor and examiner, and a recognized authority on human factors in aviation. He was formerly Senior Medical Officer Pilot and specialist in aviation medicine at the RAF Institute of Aviation Medicine, Farnborough, UK.
