FAA Recruiting Pilots at AirVenture for Research Study

The FAA is recruiting pilots attending EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2023 to participate in a PAID FAA research study. For this study, the FAA needs pilots (18-plus years of age) who have flown at least once in the last 6 months (including training simulator time), and who hold a current medical certification Class I, II, or III (not BasicMed). The study session takes about 4 hours and pays $300, $400, or $500 (dependent on medical certification class), and payment is dispersed immediately following participation!

Participation involves completing two computerized cognitive tests related to tasks such as working memory, attention, mental rotation, and multitasking performance. This study has received FAA IRB approval. The purpose of this study is to obtain pilot normative data for these computerized tests. The FAA uses these tests to help recertify pilots for flying following a medical event (e.g., stroke, head injury, certain medication). The results of this study will help ensure that aeromedical decision-making is based on the most current scientific data, and will contribute to the safety of the national airspace system.
