Aging and Flying

Libby Culpepper, a graduate student at the Wichita State University Human Factors Laboratory, is conducting a study of the effects of age-related changes in vision, audition, motor control, and cognition in pilots. She is collecting data for this study via an on-line survey.

Here's the link:

The survey is anonymous and takes 20-30 minutes to complete. The researcher is interested in collecting data from all kinds of pilots -- young, old, male, female, commercial, private, fixed wing, rotorcraft -- you name it: If you fly any kind of aircraft, you're eligible to participate.

If you're not a pilot but would still like to participate, you can be part of the comparison group by clicking on the link above and filling in the survey as a non-pilot.

By participating in this study, you will have the option to enter in a prize drawing for a Sporty’s Pilot Shop gift certificate or cash.
