Air Force T-6 squadron pauses training after more physiological scares

The Randolph pause follows a larger stand-down in February of the T-6 Texan II aircraft. The 19th Air Force grounded its T-6 fleet Feb. 1 after 13 pilots at three bases experienced “unexplained physiological events” during the last week of January.

Oxygen issues have plagued trainer and fighter aircraft across the military. Loss of proper oxygen levels, pressure or mixture have led to disorientation, consciousness and deaths for pilots that depend upon the systems to breathe as they maneuver at high altitudes.

Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force officials have previously said the rise in physiological events, or PEs, may in part be due to greater awareness by crews of potential symptoms, which has led to an uptick in reported events. Both the Navy and Air Force to date have been unsuccessful in finding a root cause behind the sharp increase in oxygen system failures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporations whose engineers who designed and built these systems, have the ultimate responsibility for fixing them.

IF they cannot, they should be thrown out of bidding on any other military contracts, and immediately.
