Abstract
During hot summer weather at CFB Portage la Prairie, measurements were made of the heat stress experienced in the cockpits of the Musketeer aircraft and the Kiowa helicopter while stationary (not-running) on the runway and during flight. It was found that severe heat stress can occur in either cockpit when monitored in closed configuration, either on the ground or in flight, and that such heat stress can lead to dire physiological strain in less than one hour.
