FAA to Delay Sleep Apnoea Policy

News has it that FAA will delay implementation of its new sleep apnoea policy planned for next month in order to gather additional input from the aviation and medical community. The new policy, which would mandate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) testing and evaluation for pilots with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 and above, was scheduled to go into effect in January. EAA and its aeromedical council strongly objected to the policy, saying such testing was not the FAA's role, was of questionable medical use relating to pilot fitness, would cause additional financial burdens to pilots, and would overburden an already taxed special issuance system for medical certificates.
