Abstract : This is a report of a study to determine (1) the nature and extent of medical service desirable at large airports; (2) the manner in which such services are now met, and (3) the means by which these services might be provided in a more effective and comprehensive manner. The study was made at one civil airport reasonably representative of other large municipal airports. Attention to was given to 2 other considerations: (1) the possible medical contributions to air safety, especially those which are, or might be, achieved through medical service to airport populations, and (2) the possible role of airport medical services in correcting the general lack of available facilities for the supervised practice of aviation medicine by civilian physicians.
