Higher carbon dioxide levels in cockpit affect airline pilot performance – From Research

Higher levels of carbon dioxide in airplane cockpits may diminish commercial pilots’ ability to perform maneuvers, recent research from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health indicates.

For the study, 30 commercial airline pilots completed three, three-hour flight sessions in a simulator. They were paired up to perform several pre-established maneuvers of varying difficulty, with carbon dioxide concentrations adjusted to 700, 1,500 and 2,500 parts per million, respectively, during each session.
