ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (11.25.23)

Aero Linx: Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI)

The FAA Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) is the medical certification, research, education, and occupational health wing of the FAA's Office of Aerospace Medicine. The goal of our activities is to enhance aviation safety. Thus, our principal concern at CAMI is the human element in flight - pilots, flight attendants, passengers, air traffic controllers - and the entire human support system that embraces civil aviation. We study the factors that influence human performance in the aerospace environment, find ways to understand them, and communicate that understanding to the aviation community.
