Professional Pilots’ Health Screening
Order Direct-To-Consumer Online Professional Health Screening Lab Tests
For obvious reasons, it is well known the airline industry is one of the most regulated industries in the country. The duty of the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) is to regulate both the airline industry and airline crew-members. Medical and psychological conditions are routinely evaluated in order to ensure fitness and competency of those who work under the regulations of the FAA.
Those who work in the airline industry face unique job challenges and must maintain self-confidence, be technically proficient and be detailed oriented. Flight crews work schedules require extensive time away from home and they must repeatedly adapt to a myriad of compressed timed changes, weather changes, and spontaneous schedule changes all that disrupt sleep wake cycles. Airline personnel must practice their trade 24/7 with very little margin for error in order to maintain pubic safety and confidence.
Without question, the airline industry is demanding. Airline pilots and flight staff are extremely resilient and continue to maintain a reputation of excellence as they work to maintain public safety and trust. The core of that internal strength, of this dedicated work force lies in their overall health and well-being.
Health and wellness isn’t a task done either at home or the workplace. Just like airline personnel, health and wellness is on call 24/7. Our goal is to support and help maintain a culture of health and wellness for professional pilots and the entire air traffic industry.
The FAA has identified automatic disqualifying conditions that result in temporary or permanent loss of pilot flight eligibility status. This partial list (but not limited to) of conditions includes angina pectoris, cardiac valve replacement, untreated & significant coronary artery disease, diabetes mellitus requiring insulin (or other hypoglycemic medication. These health conditions are identified through various diagnostic techniques including lab testing.
