Abstract : This part of the presentation deals with how the stressors described in Part I combine with factors within the man (such as previous training) and the demands of the actual flying mission to produce an overall 'workload'. The manner in which different levels of workload may affect performance are discussed and methods that might be used by Flight Surgeons to reduce aircrew workload levels are covered. The impact of future technology is briefly considered.
