Mental Health and Stress and Pilots
In the news, Max talks about electric aircraft at AirVenture. Then he talks about the rate of depression among pilots, two recent pilot suicide accidents, and two stories where the death of a family member or friend resulted in pilots having in one case a fatal accident, and in the other a pilot deviation. Here’s a link to an FAA page on depression writen by Glenn Stoutt, Jr, who’s an Aviation Medical Examiner. And this is the FAA’s Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners on Psychiatric Conditions – Use of Antidepressant Medications.
