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.
