Policy paper - Aeromedical Decision Making (ADM) in respect of mature pilots
Last year, CASA held a meeting to discuss the management of the aeromedical risks particular to maturer pilots. This risk assessment is difficult because the onset of different clinical conditions is extremely variable, and so chronological age is not a dependable indicator of performance in all the different domains.
Mirroring the risk assessment approach common to all other clinical conditions, the approach was centred around requiring applicants to demonstrate adequate performance of critical systems (eg, cardiovascular, cognition, etc) where the statistical risks become significant. The outcomes of the meeting have informed CASA’s approach, and these are presented in a position paper.
The paper is available at Policy paper - Aeromedical Decision Making (ADM) in respect of mature pilots.
