Welcome to the RAeS Aerospace Medicine Group

The aims of the Aerospace Medicine Group are to promote awareness within and outside the Society of the role of aviation and space medicine and, in concert with the Human Factors Group, human factors in aerospace. The Group also aims to improve liaison between practitioners of aerospace medicine and workers in other aeronautical disciplines.

The Committee comprises principally physicians in aerospace medicine practice and research. Interests include aircrew performance, the safety of crew and passengers in flight, the man-machine interface, the physiology of man in space, fitness to fly, illness in aircrew and passengers, and the application of medical clinical speciality knowledge to the practice of aviation medicine.

The Group organises a number of Events, including an Annual Conference, the Stewart Named Lecture, an Autumn Lecture and a Summer Visit to places such as the Air Accident Investigation Branch.
