Book preview

Fitness to Fly – A Medical Guide for Pilots is a preventive-medicine handbook that is easy-to-read, motivating and educational, with engaging content, graphics and charts to empower you to limit your health risks and set your own goals and 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.
