Whether you have passed an FAA medical or are a Sport Pilot and do not require one, it is important that all pilots police themselves when it comes to deciding if their body is “airworthy” prior to all flights. We know that there can be many factors which can affect our ability to safely conduct flight. A thorough Pre-Flight goes far beyond the airplane! This section is a reminder to pay attention to what your body is telling you. Are you safe to fly? Use the “I M Safe” Checklist.;
I Illness Do I have an illness or any symptoms of an illness – headache, chest pain, shortness of breath, indigestion, sinus infection? M Medication Have I been taking prescription or over-the-counter drugs, especially new ones? S Stress Am I under psychological pressure? Worried about financial matters, job, health problems or family discord? A Alcohol Have I been drinking within eight hours? Within 24 hours? F Fatigue Am I tired and not adequately rested? E Eating Am I adequately nourished and hydrated?
