Aerospace and Operational Physiology Flight

Mission

We prepare personnel for the human factor challenges inherent to military operations with the goal of increasing overall readiness and mission effectiveness. Our mission is to:

1. Aerospace & Operational Physiology Training -- Train aircrew, high-altitude parachutists and Air Force Academy/ROTC cadets on the human factor and physiological threats of modern aviation.

2. Aerospace & Operational Physiology Training Team (AOPTT) -- Integrate human performance optimization training and education into Team Pete operations. The goal of the team is to assist personnel in identifying, eliminating and reducing hazards; increasing work performance and reducing mishaps.

Location:
Building 425,
799 Vincent St. (directly behind the base pool and bowling alley)
