“Aviation drug testing can reassure passengers of their safety, and support the Airline’s reputation.”

Why is Drug and Alcohol Testing Important in Aviation Industry? 

The Air Navigation Order 2000, which was established under the Civil Aviation Act (1982) states that “It is an offence for a crew member of an aircraft, an air traffic controller, or a license maintenance engineer to be under the influence of drink or drugs so as to impair his capacity to carry out his aviation-related functions.  

Additionally, the Civil Aviation Publication 19 prohibits the following actions:  

  • Reporting to work while under the influence of alcohol with a blood alcohol level exceeding 0.02%. 
  • Consumption of alcohol within 8 hours prior to the designated reporting time at the workplace. 
  • Reporting to work in any safety-critical area while under the influence of any prescription or non-prescription medication or drug, unless the individual is entirely certain that the medication or treatment will not negatively affect their ability to perform their duties safely. 

The purpose of drug and alcohol testing policies is that the crew members ensure the safety and effectiveness of aviation operations.

When is Drug Testing done for Aviation Crew?  

Drug testing for aviation crew is taken at different stages:  

  1. Pre-Employment: Aviation crew members are often required to undergo drug testing as part of their pre-employment screening process. This is to ensure that they meet the required standards of safety and reliability before being hired. 
  1. Random Testing: Once employed, aviation crew members may be subject to random drug testing at any time. This helps to deter substance abuse and ensures ongoing compliance with safety regulations. 
  1. Post-Incident: Drug testing may be conducted after any aviation incident or accident to determine if drugs or alcohol were a contributing factor. 
  1. Reasonable Suspicion: If there is reasonable suspicion that a crew member may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol while on duty, they may be required to undergo testing. 
  1. Periodic or Routine Testing: Some aviation authorities or employers may require periodic or routine drug testing as part of their safety protocols.
