Why Did the FAA Lower the Standards for the EKGs of Commercial Pilots?
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
October 24, 2022, the FAA changed the EKG requirements necessary for pilots to fly — but not to make them safer
With no public announcement or explanation, the agency expanded the allowable range for PR, a measure of heart function
Widening this parameter means those with potential heart damage are now allowed to fly commercial aircraft, potentially putting passengers at risk, should they suffer a heart attack or other event while in the air
Evidence suggests that pilots’ worsening heart health is due to adverse effects of COVID19 shots
An estimated 20% of pilots screened may have suffered heart damage due to COVID-19 shots, and the FAA may have been forced to widen the EKG parameters so pilots could continue to fly
