Retired Col. Pete Mapes, a pilot-physician, was instrumental to the employment of an automatic ground collision avoidance system in fighter jets across the Air Force and co-wrote the first Air Force instruction for pilot-physicians. Because of unique medical and human factors qualifications, pilot-physicians are particularly well suited to help develop new aircraft, life support equipment and avionics or software upgrades, and to ensure that changing missions can be accommodated by crews and aircraft.
