This little manual, apparently privately published, contains about 3,000 words. It is so simple that it hardly merits the classification of a manual. The book of requirements of the medical branch of the department of aeronautics of the government lists in a detailed manner the actual physical requirements demanded from pilots. These instructions are available to any one who asks for them, without cost, except postage. Hence this booklet may be considered an unnecessary contribution to medical literature.
