Continuing its well-established and successful record of promoting EAG interoperability, the Aviation Medicine Coordination Board met for the thirty third time, on 4th and 5th April 2017. The Board comprises aviation medicine specialists from all seven EAG nations and is augmented by members of the EAG Permanent Staff. The meeting took place in the city of Maastricht and was hosted by the Royal Netherlands Air Force. The Board discussions included the potential for a future European aviation medical centre, the Remotely Piloted Air System (RPAS) Medical Training Syllabus, the High Cost Equipment Technical Arrangement, basic flight surgeon training and an update on international medical organizations. The next scheduled event will be the 13th Advanced Aviation Medicine Course in September 2017 and the next Coordination Board Meeting is scheduled for October 2017 in Paris.
