Stoenworks Announces

Stoenworks announces that a new tutorial titled "Mind Pressure" has been posted to the Stoenworks Aviation site.

Stoenworks have produced a litany of different products over the years that cover everything from basic flight tips and ideas to some really in-depth tutorials and assistance about some of the most important aircraft in history. For flight simulation fans, there can be no better tutor out there for you than the products you’ll find that Stoenworks website.

It gives you genuine control over so many facets of your development in a flight simulator as well as in real-life piloting situations. This specific work, “Mind Pressure” is a brilliant guide for those who struggle to deal with the expectancy within aviation.

It speaks of the immense pressure that comes from flying aircraft regularly and the kind of effect that being so up and down in our lives – quite literally – can have on our bodies. For a start, there has been significant research and collaboration within this book with Dr. David Hutcheson. The findings are quite stark – there is a significant increase in the chance of a pilot suffering from an aneurysm. Because of the immense pressure changes their bodies go through so regularly, an aneurysm isn’t a scare story for pilots – it’s a very real concern.

It shows that various medical studies that, following various paths of study; they have concluded that the blood vessels in our brains can be weaker in some than in others. For a pilot to suffer from having weaker vessels instantly increases the chances of an aneurysm becoming a potential problem.

The constant change from thicker to thinner air from one minute to the next for a pilot with this condition can become very dangerous, and it’s important that pilots assess these kinds of issues in the long-term to ensure they have the greatest chance of staying healthy.

This is the step-by-step guide on how to do just that, and how you can relieve the pressures on your mind on a regular basis to stop these kinds of events from being more common. The book advises medical assistance that you can follow, too, like having regular CAT scans.

Many of the conditions that could be most dangerous to a pilot are those that are never even considered as a possibility. To avoid this ever becoming a health problem for you, the best thing that can be done is to create a long-term solution that makes sure aneurysm risks are absolutely minimized. Although this is something that every pilot should discuss explicitly with their doctor, so that their own health issues can be taken into account, it’s a very important aspect of being a pilot.

Knowing your limits and being able to minimize the chances of catastrophe striking can be very important. While these implications aren’t as important for flight simulation only fans, it’s a very powerful learning piece that can really help you understand the importance of having the right mentality as a pilot.

Your body goes through so many changes mid-flight that you need to have the best body possible to be able to withstand that for a career – this can be the ideal handbook to starting that process.

This brings the number of free tutorials and other aviation-related articles available at the site to 58, ranging in subjects from "How to fly computer flight simulators" to "How to fly an ILS approach."

Sincere thanks,
Hal Stoen
