Steps to enhance pilots’ competence in combat

Indian Air Force has taken pilot-friendly policy steps to enhance its crew’s all-round health and competence in combat, Vice-Chief of the Air Staff Air Marshal D.C. Kumaria said. These include revising the rules relating to return of sick air crew, medically reducing ill-effects of long-haul sorties and improving nutrition and psychological health among pilots. Air Marshal Kumaria was speaking at the inauguration of the three-day 52nd annual conference of the Indian Society of Aerospace Medicine hosted by Institute of Aerospace Medicine (IAM). “In the past we focused on operational and technical aspects of flight safety, it is time to look at the human aspects,” he told an international gathering of aviators, Air Force doctors and technical persons.
