Question of the Week: Antidepressants and Aviators


This Week’s Question |Previous Week’s Answers


Last week, we asked AVweb readers if they’ll be attending either of the major U.S. summer aviation shows (Sun ‘n Fun and AirVenture), just local air shows, or some combination of the two. We’d like to report a seismic shift in air show attendance plans from the last time we aked this question, but there isn’t one. Your choices rant the gamut – though we were a little disappointed that only twelve readers (at press time) had indicated they would be attending both major shows and as many local events as they could get out to.

Last week, the FAA decided to relax the rules on anti-depression medications. What do you think?

Do you support the FAA’s decision to allow special issuance certificates for pilots (undergoing treatment) with well-controlled clinical depression?
