Hi, I’m new to FOIA requests. I’m curious about how to effectively write a FOIA to the US Air Force in regards to servicemen who become ill from flying a particular aircraft. I’m interested in obtaining training materials to said plane that acknowledge the potential medical side effects, or mention the known medical risks. Also, I’d like to request specifics about how many individuals have become ill flying this particular plane. \ \ First, based on your collective FOIA experiences do you think this request is possible? Second, is it too vague? If it’s vague, what language can I use to remove any ambiguity? \ Thanks in advance!

You can maybe get the training manual. I do not think they will give any medical documents. You could try for memos/reports/emails about the illness but you will probably not get anything too specific.

There are no certifications. Yes you can take the AFAST - substitute flight inclination test before any dedication Aircraft assignments depend on the requirements of the Air Force at the time you graduate flight school. In any case, aircraft Coursework Services are picked by the flight school understudies in view of class grade. At that point the most noteworthy appraised understudy in the class, gets first decision, on down the line, the lower evaluated understudies get whatever is cleared out.
