The philosophy of MIRCE Science is based on the premise that the purpose for the existence of any functionable system is to do functionability work. The work is done when the expected measurable function is performed through time. In MIRCE Science a flight crew is considered as an element of a flying system type. MIRCE Mechanics is a part of MIRCE Science that focuses on the scientific understanding of the mechanisms of the interactions between functionability elements and the consequences on functionability performance. The research performed shown that pilots and flight crews on aircraft is twice as likely as the general population to develop life-threatening melanoma skin cancer. On average, those who developed melanoma were 42% more likely to die compared with the general population. With progress in aviation technology, aircraft will fly longer and at higher altitudes attracting more and more passengers demanding more and more flights. Hence, the main objective of this paper is to investigate the mechanism of interactions between the high-altitude ultraviolet radiation on functionability of flight crew.
