Fitness to Fly - A Medical Guide for Pilots is a preventive-medicine handbook. This guide will empower you to limit your health risks, to set your own goals and strategies to maintain your fitness to fly with a balanced lifestyle.

The 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. 

ABOUT ICAO

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is a UN specialized agency, created in 1944 upon the signing of the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention).

ICAO works with the Convention’s 191 Member States and global aviation organizations to develop international Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs) which States reference when developing their legally-enforceable national civil aviation regulations.


There are currently over 10,000 SARPs reflected in the 19 Annexes to the Chicago Convention which ICAO oversees, and it is through these provisions – as well as ICAO’s complementary policy, auditing and capacity-building efforts – that today’s global air transport network is able to operate close to 100,000 daily flights, safely, efficiently and securely in every region of the world.
