Obese Pilots Now Required to Undergo Sleep Apnea Screenings

FAA recently announced a new policy that requires obese pilots (both commercial & private) to undergo sleep apnea screenings before receiving their medical certificate. Excess weight can increase the risk of some sleep disorders. If the pilot has a body mass index of 40 or greater they will be evaluated by a board certified sleep specialist for sleep apnea.  Soon this policy will also extend to air traffic controller with a high BMI.
