S谩bado, 9 de febrero de 2019 FAA CAMI Library Sin comentarios

It is issued bi-monthly, the FAA Safety Briefing is the safety policy voice for the non-commercial general aviation community. The magazine’s objective is to improve safety by:

  • making the community aware of FAA resources
  • helping readers understand safety and regulatory issues, and
  • encouraging continued training.

One of the sections is about Aeromedical Advisory, and can be interesting, not only for aircrews but also for avaition medical examiners. We encourage to all of you to look聽 through last issue about List Medications and Flight, oftenly requested by airmen; however addressing tghis request is more complicated than it might be seem.

Alcohol y Vuelo: Una combinaci贸n que puede ser letal

Jueves, 10 de enero de 2019 admin Sin comentarios

En un informe que podr铆a preocupar a los viajeros, se report贸 que pilotos de Japan Airlines hab铆an dado positivo 19 veces en las pruebas del alcohol铆metro, desde agosto de 2017, cuando se introdujo un dispositivo m谩s sensible para los controles internos. El 煤ltimo informe surge tras la noticia de que un piloto de Japan Airlines admiti贸 haber estado m谩s de 10 veces por encima del l铆mite legal de alcohol en el aeropuerto Heathrow de Londres, en octubre de 2018.

El alcohol es聽 la “droga” m谩s consumida en nuestro entorno sociocultural, de la que m谩s se abusa y la que m谩s problemas sociales y sanitarios causa. El alcohol en concreto adormece progresivamente el funcionamiento de los centros cerebrales superiores, produciendo desinhibici贸n conductual y emocional. No es un estimulante, como a veces se cree: la euforia inicial que provoca se debe a que su primera acci贸n inhibidora se produce sobre los centros cerebrales responsables del autocontrol.

En aviaci贸n siempre tenemos que estar recordando que la combinaci贸n del alcohol con el vuelo puede ser fatal, y para ello nada mejor que recordar los puntos b谩sicos en este folleto de la FAA.
