Welcome to the Aeromedical Reference
and Waiver Guide
The focus of the Aeromedical Reference and Waiver Guide is to explain the medical and physical standards required for aviation duty. As with previous editions, this reference is published as an supplement to the Manual of the Medical Department (MANMED) and as a service to the Aeromedical community. This publication serves as a guide that reflects MANMED, NATOPS, and NASA instructions and requirements for flight duty. It is designed to help the Flight Surgeon and aviation medical technicians manage the challenging cases and routine administrative tasks of aviation medicine. Every effort has been made to ensure the information presented is in accordance with current aviation medicine guidelines and MANMED. Some of the standards and policies published in the Aeromedical Reference and Waiver Guide (ARWG) reflect forthcoming changes approved by BUMED or future changes to MANMED. If any information in the waiver guide appears to conflict with MANMED, please contact NAMI Code 342 for guidance and clarification on that subject. Progress, research and changes in aviation medicine concepts will results in periodic changes to this guide. Updates to this guide will be posted on the NAMI Web Page as soon as possible and when approved by BUMED. Suggestions for revisions, improvements or changes should be sent to NAMI Code 342 for review and consideration. The current ARWG is also available on the Word Wide Web at the BUMED 23 and NAMI Home Page.
