German pilots will be tested for alcohol and drugs

The German government offered to check pilots for alcohol and drug addiction.

According to the views of the German government, most of the aircraft incidents can be eliminated if the requirements for aircraft pilots are toughened, in particular, regularly check for alcohol before flying, and also perform a monthly drug dependence test. It is reported that if there is practically no problems with alcohol in the blood of the pilots, then the fight against drug addiction is not actually conducted, which may mean that various kinds of violations threatening the safety of people are possible in this regard.

At the moment, the order is under discussion, however, according to German political scientists, the commanders of aircrafts will be tested for alcohol and drug addiction from the middle of next year.
