FAA Drafts New Sleep Apnoea Guidelines
The FAA has drafted new guidelines for dealing with potential cases of sleep apnoea among pilots and sent them to key members of the medical community for review. Under the draft guidelines announced April 1, pilots will not be disqualified based on body mass index (BMI) alone, and pilots will be issued medical certificates even if they are referred for additional evaluation. Under the draft guidelines, aviation medical examiners (AMEs) will continue to ask questions related to sleep apnoea, as they have done since 2009.
