About us

The Association of Aviation Medical Examiners is a registered educational charity. Its objectives are to advance, for the public benefit, education and research in aviation medicine and to publish the useful results of such research.

In furtherance of the above objectives, the Association arranges an Annual Scientific Meeting. The main purposes of the meeting are:

  • to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of research in the field of aviation medicine;
  • to provide a forum for the exchange of information on all aspects of aviation medicine; and
  • to contribute to the continuing medical education of the members of the Association, in particular the requirements and physical standards for licensing of flight crew and other aviation related personnel as outlined in the Air Navigation Order.

The Association also maintains this website, where it publishes information on aviation medicine and health of interest to both health professionals and the general public.

Information of specific interest to members, including the minutes of meetings, is published on ‘members only’ pages on the website.
