To probe the foot sizes of Chinese male pilots on the bases of databank for GJB4856, statistical analysis was made with indexes of foot length and foot girth in the frames of GB/T3293.1 and GJB1095. Results show that there are 11 foot marks for foot length of 230–280 mm, which cover 72.24 % of the pilot population in GJB4856, and 7 foot types for foot girth of 227–270 mm. It suggests that the most foot sizes of the pilots are distributed in 9 marks of 235–275 and 5 types of 2–4, which cover 65.2 % of the population mentioned above.
