A major purpose of aeromedicine as a specialty is the prevention of aircraft accidents. Only prevention can save lives. From the earliest days of aviation, almost all aviation accidents have been attributed to the human factor called spatial disorientation. To understand spatial disorientation, one must comprehend how the human body interacts and interprets the environment of flight. This understanding can help to provide control and prevent loss of spatial orientation that can lead to aviation accidents.
