The EAG High Cost Equipment Technical Arrangement has been effective since 2016 . The High Cost Equipment Project was initiated in 2010. Until now there was no pre-established mechanism to enable member nations to share their Aeronautical Medicine aircrew training equipment and installations, such as centrifuges, spatial disorientation chambers, hypobaric chambers or night vision training facilities – generically defined as AvMed High Cost Equipment (HCE). This Equipment is normally underused. Therefore, enabling nations to share the use of their HCE will provide stronger support to Human Factors (HF) training and a reduction of associated costs.
This TA provides the legal and administrative multinational framework to facilitate the voluntary exchange of Human Factors training of aircrew using AvMed HCE, in accordance with national procedure and priorities and without interfering with national training.
