Aviation Medicine In Dubai


Aviation professionals, including Pilots, cabin crews, air-traffic controllers and flight engineers, bear a
great deal of responsibility because they are responsible for hundreds of lives while flying.

Physical illness, medication, stress, alcohol, fatigue, and emotion are all factors that can impair a pilot’s ability and make a flight unsafe. If an aviation professional has a medical condition, it may impair his or her ability to fly safely.

A current medical certificate of good physical and mental health is essential. Their physical and mental health is assessed by aviation doctors, who also perform blood pressure and other diagnostic tests such as ECGs, ultrasound of the heart and blood vessels and stress tests. This is where aviation medicine comes into play.
