Welcome from the President

Welcome to all Academicians and visitors to our website,

Thank you for visiting and for your interest in the work of the Academy.  We are a small international group, founded in 1955, of doctors, scientists, nurses and other professionals in aviation and space medicine who bring together a considerable experience of its varied practice around the world.

This charitable organisation supports academic scientific exchange through conferences and uses its income from membership and other sources to provide scholarships and mentorship for those seeking training in this specialty.

Our membership of Academicians is about 250 but is drawn from all the inhabited continents of the globe. Our aim is to support the advance of aviation and space medicine, especially in those parts of the world where such opportunities have been limited.  Please take a moment to explore our website and see something of what we do.
