Flying Evaluation Board Information
Flying Evaluation Boards Determine Pilots' Flight Status
Searching for a military law lawyer for a Flying Evaluation Board (FEB)? Servicemen and women in the Air Force, Navy, Marines or Army must adhere to a stringent set of guidelines in order to maintain their current rating or flight status. Should there be a question regarding performance, a Flying Evaluation Board will be convened in an effort to determine whether the rated officer, CEA, non-rated officer, enlisted aircrew member or civilian government employee should retain their flight status or face the consequences of their failures or shortcomings in regulatory adherence.

Flying Evaluation Boards can be a serious threat for military members serving in the aviation field who are participating in flight-based missions and procedures. There is a strict process that must be followed, and anyone preparing to enter into an FEB should strongly consider enlisting the services of an FEB attorney who has experience with Flying Board Evaluations. The FEB will research the circumstances and make a determination as to your status, whether you should be suspended, reinstated or other decision – which could heavily impact your career and rank. The timeline for this administrative, research-oriented procedure is a short time window, and so there is very little room for error.
A Flying Board Evaluation may be convened for a range of questions regarding performance, including for rated officers or CEAs who have been disqualified or invalidated from aviation service for more than 8 years, or if an aircrew member shows a lack of proficiency or insufficient knowledge of flying directives or negligence in violation of regulated flying procedures. Those who fail to meet various training standards while attending a USAF formal flying training course may also be called into an FEB so that the aircrew member's future in aviation service is determined. Other reasons also exist for calling a Flying Board Evaluation, such as showing a lack of judgment as duties are conducted, knowingly violating aviation instructions or procedures, or even the exhibition in an aircrew member of certain habits, traits or characteristics that could impact the ability to perform flying duties. Some examples of this might be a perceived fear of flying, airsickness or lack of desire to fly.
