Pilot Medical Solutions | Cognitive Issues
|While Aviation Medical
Examiners do not typically perform formal or complete psychiatric
evaluations, the examiner is expected to form a general impression of the emotional stability and
mental state of the applicant.
When cognitive issues are
discovered or suspected, the FAA typically requires neuropsychological
testing such as the Cogscreen test developed
by Gary Kay. This testing often reveals areas of both strengths and
weakness. In certain cases, the areas of weakness can be
expeditiously rehabilitated by clinical
programs, online training and even game applications which have been
designed to reduce certain cognitive deficits.
Comprehensive cognitive fitness programs designed specifically for pilots are available from Pilot Medical Solutions. Please contact us for more information.
