Aviation and medical experts will debate the dangers faced by pilots as a result of poor cabin air quality at a London conference next month. Speakers at the Con­tam­inated Air Protection Conference will include representatives of regulators, trade unions, medical and scientific experts and the Royal Australian Air Force, which has conducted extensive research in the area.

The British Air Line Pilots Association, which is organising the conference, says evidence suggests pilots and cabin crew may be at risk from extended exposure to contaminated air as a result of their work.

Data on the potential problems and solutions will be presented throughout the two-day event on 20-21 April.
