Expert Witness Testimony and Aeromedical Legal Consultation

Aeromedical considerations are often critical in legal proceedings related to an aircrew’s ability to maintain FAA medical certification or as part of an aviation mishap investigation.  In order for one to perform piloting duties, each individual must maintain both pilot and current FAA medical certification.
