What is aviation medicine?

The Aerospace Medicine 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 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.
  • Improve liaison between practitioners of aerospace medicine and workers in other aeronautical disciplines.
