Abstract:

Airline medical departments have provided a system of preventive health maintenance for their crews that has economically effected rehabilitation of experienced crewmembers who otherwise would have lost their medical licenses and thereby their livelihood. In recognition of this fact, the FAA has proposed to designate full-time or consultant physicians of certain air carriers in order that they might examine and certify their own crewmembers. The impact of this proposal on the presently designated senior aviation medical examiners is considered. Computer data relating to the activity of these designees indicate that relatively few would be significantly involved. Those not serving as consultants to an airline would still be examining over 50 percent of the first-class certificate holders. Author
