Brief Description:

Impairment from medication, particularly over-the-counter (OTC) medication, has been cited in a number of accidents in general aviation. In a 2011 study from the FAA’s CAMI Toxicology Lab, drugs/medications were found in 570 pilots (42%) from 1,353 total fatal pilots tested. Most of the pilots with positive drug results, 511 (90%), were flying under CFR part 91.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires standard labeling for all OTC medications. These standard labels indicate the active ingredients, directions for use, and highlight potential side effects like drowsiness. But do you know ow if you can fly with these OTC medications? So if you have to take a disqualifying or impairing medicine, how long should you wait before resuming flying or can you fly with that medication? The answer to these questions, and others, will be discussed as well as useful information on where to find the latest information.
