Improving your physical function will lead to improved brain efficiency from enhanced biochemistry, circulation and digestion. This makes a great case for getting good at the basics.
Commercial-Passenger – Base Op’s and Ground Crew – Staying Well, Counteracting Degeneration and Injuries
Ground operations and flight support are essential for commercial airlines to function smoothly. Whether you’re handling baggage, refueling aircraft, juggling schedules, cleaning aircraft or getting passengers to their destinations, everyday requirements place constant physical and mental stressors on each team member.
Strategic thinking and packing along with a good sense of humor can be your greatest strengths when it comes to offsetting the many physiological stressors and degenerative impacts of flying at 12,500 – 50,000 feet on a regular basis. Even though you may think your patience is the system that’s most stressed on a regular basis, your Circulatory and Respiratory systems are really the ones most affected, even in pressurized cabins.
Stress, fatigue, airline schedules, weather, maintenance issues and airport demands are the most common stressors affecting pilots and influencing air safety in this sector of aviation. Every day is different, even though your home base and chosen flights may be to the same destination.
Since maintainers, mechanics and other workers are already physically active, perhaps some information about how to increase mental stamina and avoid injuries would be helpful.
Keeping aircraft systems, components, and equipment in top working order requires physical and mental sharpness and stamina. All maintainers are already physically active and could use information about injury avoidance and how to stay mentally strong.
Air cargo/freight is highly demanding on ground operations and flight support, as handling materials, staying on schedule, and meeting requirements place enormous stressors, both physically and mentally on everyone. Some of the most common health issues are the effects of overuse and repetitive strain injuries, convenience diets (with associated inflammation) and, deadline-driven stress. Health improvements
