A Fresh Look at Aeromedical Certification

Exploring Collaboration 

This site is for commercial pilots, airlines, unions, medical providers, and the Federal Aviation Administration (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 and connector for this potential collaboration among airlines, pilots, pilots’ associations, medical providers/aviation medical examiners, and the FAA.

Based on stakeholder interviews and input in 2023, we are excited about the possibility that in 2024 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 representative participation from the groups noted above and seek those 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 work on a data-driven approach that shapes a future system
