Abstract
This report documents a study investigating the Canadian Forces (CF) aircrew entrance vision standard. A literature review was conducted to identify a method for establishing bona fide occupational requirements and validated standards for aircrew related visual functions. A protocol for establishing and validating an occupationally based visual acuity standard for the CF pilot occupation was selected. Tasks that have critical visual acuity functions were identified based on data obtained through questionnaires and a focus group session. The study proposes potential task simulations that accurately reflect critical aircrew tasks and an experimental plan to establish vision standards.
