One of the biggest risks in the aviation industry, particularly for professionals such as cabin crew and pilots, is the risk of sickness.
Loss of sleep, irregular sleeping patterns, poor diet and lack of exercise can all contribute to fatigue and the erosion in the effectiveness of the body's immune system.
The immune system is the first defense against illnesses that are common among the general population, for those who are up in the air more frequently, more care should be taken due to the prolonged exposure to elevated levels of solar radiation.
Published research has shown that some flight attendants and commercial pilots have experienced other health affects due to prolonged exposure to pressurized cabin air environments, sometimes associated with pre-existing allergies.

The medical examinations that are carried out for Pilots are more extensive than for cabin crew, the exact specifications of these tests changes from time to time as they are regulated by the UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority.
Medical examinations for pilots for example might include eyesight checks, psychiatric assessments, ECG tests and tests of the functionality and health of the lungs, blood work, x-rays among others.
Medical examinations for cabin crew on the other hand might be limited to a general medical examination that includes urine analysis to check for diabetes and drug/alcohol levels.
The best and only source of information about the nature of these tests is the UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority.
The majority of these considerations are in the hands of the respective airline that you work at, whose policies are developed in direct conjunction and in adherence to the prevalent laws and regulations developed and enforced by the UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority.
