Abstract : This guide provides U.S. Army flight surgeons (FS) with guidelines for completing flying duty medical examinations (FDME) that are compatible with Aviation Epidemiology Data Register (AEDR) data entry. It details the review and disposition of aeromedically disqualified aviation training program applicants, aircrew members, and air traffic controllers, both civilian and military. The traditional core of Army aviation medicine is the delivery of clinical and operational preventive medicine services. This administration guide establishes a public health protocol as it pertains to the conduct of U.S. Army FDMEs. The FDME protocol adopts the current standard of preventive health care promoted by the U.S. Public Health Service, but is modified to meet the needs and challenges of the operational Army aviation environment. The protocol is the result of 6 years of literature review, AEDR research, and staffing of proposed aviation medicine public health policy through the U.S. Army Aeromedical Center, U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory, Army Surgeon General Aviation Medicine Consultant, and the Aeromedical Consultant Advisory Panel.
