“Incapacitation” means any reduction in medical fitness to a degree or of a nature that is likely to jeopardize flight safety. Incapacitation of flight crew during flight is a serious threat to aviation safety. The focus of the periodic medical examination has been to detect medical conditions, and almost exclusively the emphasis has been on detecting physical medical conditions that may pose a threat to flight safety during the ensuing period of validity of the Medical Assessment. Therefore, the aviation medical examiner should be able to understand the incapacitation to utilize it for flight crew health evaluation and promotion.
