The FAA may require a commercial pilot, private pilot, pilot applicant, air traffic controller (ATC) or air traffic controller applicant to undergo psychological or neuropsychological evaluation as a means to determine their fitness to perform their duties safely. Evaluation requests are guided by the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) and may be requested by the FAA, an aviation medical examiner (AME), Regional Flight Surgeon, airline employer, or by the applicant or pilot.
There are a number of standardized FAA protocols that require neuropsychological assessment. Our psychologists receive ongoing training and updates to insure we meet FAA standards for conducting such evaluations. Keeping current with FAA standards and regulations insures that examinations address the issues required by the FAA, and in doing so, minimize the time and expense to the examinee.
