Pilots flying with Diabetes and Insulin

Viernes, 17 de febrero de 2012 Pedro Ortiz García Sin comentarios

“Pilots With Diabetes” (PWD) is a group of former commercial and military pilots, aspiring commercial pilots and current private pilots, all with insulin-dependent diabetes. Currently only five countries worldwide allow private flying with insulin dependent diabetes (USA, UK, Canada, Australia and Israel) and one country allows multi-crew commercial flying (Canada). This could be interesting for any AME’s around the world.

Fire Fighting Plane crash caused by heart attack

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada released its final report yesterday into the cause of the April 23, 2010 crash of a Grumman TBM Avenger Water Bomber. Ronny Clowes, 62, was founded death after¬† the aircraft collided with the ground just south of the airport, two minutes after departure.¬†The final report, which is available online, named two contributing factors, or causes, in the crash. The first was Clowes’ underlying coronary disease, which was not identified despite the defences built into the Civil Aviation Medicine, or CAM, system. The second factor was the fact Clowes suffered a heart attack during flight that led to the crash. Clowes was being treated for high blood pressure and he also had elevated blood sugar levels at the time of the accident. The prevention system was unable to avoid this incapacitation and this accident can serve the purpose of helping to revamp that system.
