A Fresh Look at Aeromedical Certification
This site is for commercial pilots and representatives of airlines, unions, AMEs and the FAA to learn more about collaborating to take a fresh look at aeromedical certification and pilot health as a part of aviation safety risk management. The not-for-profit MITRE Corporation is conducting this research and serving as an independent convener of a potential collaboration among airlines, unions, pilots, AMEs, and the FAA.
Based on stakeholder interviews and input in 2023, we are excited about the possibility that this type of collaboration could lead to:
- Increased retention and availability of pilots through co-creating more data-driven standards
- Sustained aviation safety while boosting operational efficiency and flexibility
- A more reliable process with clear standards that support both potential and current pilots’ proactive health and career interests as well as aviation safety
Our premise is that, by sharing data with appropriate safeguards, we can co-create an evidence-based approach to aviation risk management that better addresses your needs and concerns while sustaining or improving safety. We’re looking for perspectives from pilots, unions, airlines, and AMEs who are:
- Visionary / innovative thinkers
- Well-connected in their organization so they can bring additional perspectives on data, safeguards, or other considerations forward as needed
- Aware of the opportunities and challenges for improving the future of aeromedical certification
- Willing and available to discuss how a data-driven approach might shape a future system
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or feedback. Thank you for your time and consideration.
