The Pilot Fatigue Problem
For years, pilot fatigue has been a real issue. Airline pilots, as well as cargo, corporate and charter pilots all face fatigue while flying. While fatigue can be common and overlooked in the aviation industry, it poses a very troubling threat to safety, and should be taken seriously.

The I'M SAFE Checklist
As pilots, we love our checklists. So it's no surprise that there is a self-assessment checklist to assist pilots in determining physical and mental health before flight. The I'M SAFE Checklist is taught early in flight training and is used throughout a pilot's professional career to assess their overall readiness for flight when it comes to health.
