On 18th June 2007 the Aerotoxic Association was founded at the Houses of Parliament in London, UK to support those members of the public who have been affected by Aerotoxic Syndrome.
As Aerotoxic Syndrome is inconveniently caused by commercial jet aircraft – it has been a challenging eleven years but, by always publishing evidence from both sides, it has been possible to allow others to decide if the authorities claims of ‘no positive evidence’ of a matter which affects the health of any member of the public who flies, is true?
In the past 12 months there have been many significant breakthroughs – now the known solutions are available TODAY, as EasyJet and Spirit Airlines boldly adopt them and other airlines will have to follow their lead to protect their staff and customers.
On Aerotoxic Association you can learn of a World Health Organisation paper Aerotoxic Syndrome – a new occupational disease?’; a 2017 International Cabin Air Conference; how the UK CAA now accept that any member of the public can become a ‘patient’ following an oil fume event, but still refuse to accept how multiple exposures would lead to a chronic condition, and read published scientific papers from all over the world.
Perhaps the best way to find out about the issue from both a passenger’s and aircrew’s point of view, is from a BBC TV Panorama documentary of 10 years ago Something in the Air or the 2013 Australian TV programme ‘Toxic Flyer’, but also question why little further public broadcasting has been done since on an issue of public interest?
What did happen to the case of 60 UK passengers who were Aerotoxic poisoned on 1st February 2007? The outcome is vital to anyone who steps foot in an unfiltered ‘bleed air’ system jet airliner, with no means yet of detecting toxic nerve agents.
On 22nd May 2018 the Aerotoxic Association called for all evidence, both positive and negative, which will be sent to the International Criminal Court at The Hague. Please make sure you send your evidence for a full Independent Public Inquiry by 31st August 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org
A former professional pilot’s testimony: My Case – from ‘anonymous’. It is kept anonymous as most aircrew fear for their well being by going public – this is just the latest example of countless other testimonies from the past 11 years.
For the past year I have been working closely with Bearnairdine Beaumont in Switzerland, who, as a former Lufthansa purser, also experienced the debilitating symptoms and chronic ill health of Aerotoxic Syndrome. She assists closely in all our projects, updates the website and continues to help countless others. If you value our work and the success that has been achieved over the past 11 years – please do join the Aerotoxic Association today, or consider donating to support our work.
Lastly, huge thanks to all of those spirited people of the public who have supported those of us who are affected by Aerotoxic Syndrome helping others – it is much appreciated, and just to confirm: the known solutions are available – today!
