Quite some time ago, I wrote an article on this blog about ADHD, pilots and ADHD medication. This is a tricky issue -because we all want pilots to be safe in the air, and I believe that people with ADHD can be outstanding pilots and should be allowed to take their medication and still fly! (Better than them not taking their medication or not pursuing the diagnosis to try to keep their pilot’s license!).
Just recently, a doctor emailed me, and let me know that he had created a whole web site about this issue.
It’s a great site and I recommend it.
Check it out -and please pass it along to anyone you know who has ADD and wants to fly.
Here it is: www.ADHDPilots.org/
