The U.S. Air Force successfully tested Insta Pilot’s Breath Air Monitor, IPBAM, on F-16 aircraft this fall and has wrote an article about testing.
The 8-week test flight program is now successfully completed. 22 different pilots and 16 aircraft tested IPBAM.
In addition to giving early warning, IPBAM monitors, calculates and delivers a data log for measured and calculated parameters and supports de-briefing and root cause analysis. In this test flight program the testing team collected 94 flight hours of data.
Pilots have been satisfied with IPBAM as it is easy to use and effective, and as it helps solving issues with cabin pressure, oxygen concentrations, and possible hypoxia-like symptoms which F-16 pilots have reported – all in all: device improves pilot safety.
