AsHFA Goals:

  • To encourage human factors considerations in the development of aerospace systems
  • To apply our knowledge of human performance to system development

The Organization:

The Aerospace Human Factors Association (AsHFA) was established to further the goals of the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA), increase AsMA membership, and serve as a voice of the Human Factors community within AsMA. AsHFA is organized with its own Constitution and By-Laws and elects its own officers. AsHFA has an elected, voting representative who serves on the AsMA Council and it appoints a member to AsMA's Nominating Committee. The organization has a budget, collects dues, and disburses funds to cover expenses. AsHFA has been granted tax-exempt status by the IRS. To become a member of AsHFA, one must first be a current member in good standing of AsMA. An application link can be found on the Membership Committee page.

Liaison Activities:

AsHFA has established liaison with other scientific organizations, such as APA Division 21 (Division of Applied Experimental and Engineering Psychology), the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, DOD Human Factors Engineering Technical Advisory Group, SAE G10, SAFE, and others to exchange information and further its goals.
