Maintain good health throughout your carer as a pilot
19 September, 2018
We are delighted that ICAO will be launching their new book – Fitness to Fly – A Medical Guide for Pilots at our Aviation Health Conference that is taking place in London on the 25th and 26th September 2018.
Fitness to Fly is a preventive-medicine handbook for Pilots that is easy-to-read, motivating and educational, with engaging content, graphics and charts to help them limit their health risks and set strategies to maintain fitness to fly and a balanced lifestyle.
This guide was developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in collaboration with the International Federation of Airline Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
It is focused on the health risks pilots face during their careers and the medical recommendations that help them mitigate those risks. This handbook is intended to close the gap between pilots’ medical requirements in order to fly and the preventive measures that can help them fulfill those requirements.
The recommendations contained in this guide are also applicable for cabin crew, air traffic controllers and anyone working within the aviation industry. They will help improve the personal health of aviation personnel throughout their careers, bringing positive outcomes for all aviation stakeholders in the long-term. This is ICAO’s contribution to promoting the well-being of the aircrew community – a priority shared by all aviation stakeholders. www.unitingaviation.com/fitnesstofly
