Navy to Implement Cockpit Air Safety System in Aircraft

1 min read

The Navy plans to install a cockpit pressure monitoring and warning system on fighter aircraft to reduce physiological events among pilots, USNI News reported Thursday. The service branch intends to implement this new system in over a thousand F/A-18A-D Hornet, F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler aircraft, the report noted. 

Rear Adm. Fredrick Luchtman, who leads the Physiological Episodes Action Team, told USNI News that they discovered air fluctuations would sometimes result to physiological symptoms. The system's implementation would commence later this year and run over a two-year period, he said.
