Today on Aviation LO Down, I sit down with William "Billy" Hoffman, author of 'Wings of Deceit', one of my favorite books based on aviation. Billy attended Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, DC and is currently doing a residency in neurology. He is a private pilot, member of the U.S. Air Force, and in particular, is interested in the interface between neuroscience and aerospace. Billy is also interested in a number of studies having to do with pilot health; some of Billy's studies ask fascinating questions, such as the one that looked to see how likely pilots are to report medical concerns. The results may surprise you. Billy continues to do these sorts of studies, and asks the listeners to participate, if they wish. For more information, you can e-mail Billy Hoffman at wrh35@georgetown.edu.
