Aeromedical support can be provided as a one-time training program, a short-term or a long-term support contract. The focus of the support is addressing Human Performance.
An example of one-time training would be providing from 1 to 8 hours of training. This could also be multiple days of training such as our 3-Day Human Factors course.
Short- and long-term contracts consist of both on-site and off-site responsibilities. Each has specific tasks and even though on-site representation shifts to off-site does not mean our responsibilities are suspended. An example of short- or long-term contract Scope of Work would be:
