Abstract : This manual discusses issues in psychiatry and psychology unique to aerospace medicine including: psychiatric disease in the aviator, selection of aircrew and astronauts, fear of flying, and the personality of the successful aviator. This manual addresses issues not emphasized in the typical psychiatry or psychology text, specifically airsickness, combat stress, aircrew fatigue management, prisoner-of-war experiences, and sequelae of aviation mishaps (accidents). Other issues in psychiatry and psychology, which are not fundamentally different from those encountered in everyday civilian and military practice, are not addressed in detail here but are dealt with in many widely available textbooks.
