Project CS 14/04 - Development of airworthiness Aeromedical standards, policy and guidance for medical fit modifications and associated equipment
Discussions with industry indicate a need to have a consistent set of airworthiness standards that can be applied to certain aircraft modifications incorporated into aircraft. A secondary concern is the interoperability of medical equipment between air and road transport.
The increasing range and sophistication of medical support equipment being used in aircraft with little or no qualification is an area of concern. An assessment of medical versus flight safety risk is required.
Cabin configuration and passenger/patient restraint are issues that need to be addressed. This may include the restraint of patients in RPT operations.
- Review current aeromedical fitout designs, including commercial medical equipment and road stretcher systems.
- Consult with industry representatives with the aim of refining the scope of the project and acquiring details of the medical risks (for and against) of EMS and Air Ambulance.
- Development content, possibly via an industry working group, for guidance material, standards and any regulatory changes.
