The invention relates to medical engineering and more particularly to a method for monitoring the functional status of a pilot in flight conditions. According to this method, the pressure of the pilot's hand on the joystick and the intensity thereof, the changes in joystick trajectory, the pressure of pilot's feet on the directional pedals, the position of the pilot's head, the respiratory process, oxygen pressure and the quality of the mixture in the pipe of the oxygen system, the pressure in the anti-g suit, critical and current altitudes as well as the value of the g are recorded. If the recorded parameters deviate from the reference values, an analysis and control unit generates data on the occurrence of a contingency and transmits such data to the pilot. If the pilot eliminates such a contingency, the analysis unit cancels the command output to the voice synthesizer; if the pilot does not react to said data, a signal is generated in order to activate stimulation systems, to put the plane on a level flight and to activate automatic piloting and landing systems. The inventive device contains a sensor unit, an analysis and control unit and an output unit.
