Mumbai (Uttam Hindu News) – Under a proposal, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has asked to consider banning the use of perfume by pilots and flight crew members. DGCA has said in its proposal that now the crew members or pilots will not use any medicine, perfume or dental products which contain alcohol as it can make them positive in the alcohol test.
According to reports, the DGCA has already banned alcoholic drinks like mouthwash that can cause positive breath tests. “No member of the crew shall consume any medicine/formulation,” the proposal said. Nor will one use any product like mouthwash/tooth gel/perfume which contains alcohol. Doing this may result in a positive breathalyzer test. If any crew member is taking such medicines, he will have to consult the company doctor before coming for the flight.
Let us tell you that the rules related to alcohol are very strict for the crew members and pilots of Indian Airlines. Both DGCA and airlines conduct this test under the surveillance of cameras.
