Aeromedical Collaboration Environment for Fusing Pilot Medical Certification and Operational Data

The purpose of this project is to fuse FAA pilot medical certification decisions with operational safety outcomes beyond the historical outcomes of interest of mishap and pilot incapacitation events. Achieving this objective requires enhancing the traditional aerospace medicine safety management system data environment to make it a collaborative innovation environment with joint FAA and industry participation. This project addresses the question of how the FAA can form a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with the commercial airline industry to obtain pilot operational performance and safety data for linking to agency medical certification data to support advanced risk analyses. This project will include an industry outreach to create a PPP with one or more commercial airline partners, a feasibility assessment for creating an Aeromedical Collaborative Environment (ACE), and the design and construction of the ACE.
