It applies to all Department of Defense (DOD) facilities using the AE system, including Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units and members. A brief description of the AE organization, types of aircraft used, and the AE environment provides baseline capability and insight into the AE system. Emphasis is placed on the originating physician's responsibility and the medical aspects of patient preparation. A checklist is included to assist in adequately preparing the patient for flight (see attachment 1 ).
