Abstract : Although numerous international agreements provide for interchangeability of aircrew medical categories for the medical examination of aircrew visiting or jointly serving with sister air forces or allied air forces, the basic administrative processes remain unique between air forces. Publication of information regarding aeromedical administration would facilitate an understanding of regulatory references, requirements, and terminology between air forces. A better understanding and sharing of information might provide for further standardization of basic administrative terms and processes for aircrew medical examination. The Air Standardization Coordinating Committee tasked the U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory to develop such a publication.
