Abstract
As a population, adults on average are larger and taller than in the past. Projection of this trend into the future provides valuable information to the engineer working to design equipment or systems for future populations. In the report, recently collected anthropometric data on Canadian Forces (CF) aircrew are compared to past data to examine the trend. Mean stature is used as an indicator of population trends of change in body size. It is concluded that the "young adult" CF aircrew population is increasing in average stature at a rate of approximately 0.55 cm per decade.
