Abstract
DCIEM has been tasked to review CF aircrew anthropometry and aircraft cockpit geometry, and to make appropriate recommendations to ensure that CF aircrew selection standards are compatible with current and future cockpits. The key aspect of the tasking is seen as being the proposal of a process for determining physical incompatibility between each CF aircraft type and potential aircrew. Following a review of the methods for assessing aircrew/cockpit compatibility currently used in the ASCC member services, and approach based on man-modelling computer aided design (CAD) has been adopted. The paper reviews progress made on the tasking thus far, and discusses the rationale for the selection of the CAD approach.
