Abstract
During the first half of 1974 there was a noticeable increase in the number of pilots from HS-50 Squadron either being referred to Central Medical Board or taking their release. The report discusses the various factors that are considered to have contributed to the increase. A conceptual model to describe how these factors interacted is also presented. To alleviate the situation and prevent it from recurring, two studies are recommended: A review of pilot training and selection, and a human factors study of the Sea King operational environment.
