Pilot Tactical Dehydration – An Operational Risk Comparable to Intoxication?
June 11, 2014
Most military pilots practice Tactical Dehydration every day, unaware of its devastating effects and symptoms, which increase the risk of aircraft incidents and accidents, even on short flights during a mildly warm day.
Dehydration results in significant decrements in physical and cognitive performance of aircrew. Each of these can occur when two percent or more of body weight is lost because of unreplaced water or water restriction, heat and/or physical exertion. A practical solution has now been approved by the USAF, and USN/ USMC.
