64 commercial airline pilots (ages 35–64 yr., Mdn: 53) were surveyed regarding hearing loss and tinnitus. Within specific age groups, the proportions responding positively exceed the corresponding proportions in the general population reported by the National Center for Health Statistics. 

Topics from this paper

Hearing status among commercial pilots in a Swedish airline company
TLDR
P pilots are exposed to equivalent noise levels below the current Swedish occupational standard, with short peak exposures above the standard, and have normal age-matched hearing thresholds, when adjusted for age and gender by multiple logistic regressions analysis. Expand
Hearing status among cabin crew in a Swedish commercial airline company
TLDR
Cabin crew are exposed to equivalent noise levels below the current Swedish occupational standard, and have normal age-matched hearing threshold levels, when adjusting for age and gender by multiple logistic regression analysis. Expand
Assessment of noise in the airplane cabin environment
TLDR
FAA should consider applying the more health-protective NIOSH/ACGIH occupational noise recommendations to the aircraft cabin environment and identify appropriate response actions. Expand
Surveillance of noise exposure in the Danish workplace: a baseline survey
TLDR
A substantial proportion of workers are exposed to noise levels above the current threshold limit of 85 dB(A), and Ongoing surveillance of noise exposure using full shift dosimetry of workers in random samples of workplaces most at risk to high noise levels may help reinforce preventive measures.

Three-dimensional audio versus head-down traffic alert and collision avoidance system displays.
TLDR
An experiment to measure and compare the acquisition time for capturing visual targets under two conditions: standard head-down Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System display and three-dimensional (3-D) audio traffic alert and collision avoidance presentation showed a significant difference in target acquisition time between the two conditions.
