STRONGER FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION REQUIREMENTS NEEDED TO IDENTIFY AND REDUCE ALCOHOL USE AMONG CIVILIAN PILOTS
Alcohol intoxication is the cause or contributing factor in many general aviation accidents; that is, all civilian flying except by U.S. airlines. Use of driving conviction information of pilots and improved medical examination procedures could help reduce the incidence of alcohol-related accidents. Minimum blood-alcohol levels and mandatory testing of pilots suspected of drinking are needed to deter pilots from drinking and flying.
