It's been an open secret that the aeromedical system is broken. But it's not a secret anymore.

Pilots and family members are speaking out and telling their stories of being harmed by a system stuck in the past and resistant to change.


As a professional airline pilot, I have to choose between treating mental illness, and supporting my family. I have many peers that don’t disclose conditions and treatment for fear of being unable to support their family.


The things we hear about. I know a pilot whose wife has a Zoloft prescription (it's his). I've heard of a guy who got his dog on Prozac (it's his). We hear of people using every substance you can think of to try and self-medicate. The one thing they won't ever do is seek help in their name.
