In recent years a broad consensus has been agreed that the risk of incapacitation of professional pilots should not exceed the event rate associated with a cardiovascular mortality of 1% year'This standard has become known as the 1% rule and has provided a yardstick for medical decisions on certification.
It has proved to be generally valuable and represents methodology that cannot readily be replaced.
Most of the data available for cardiovascular disease relate to mortality rather than morbidity, but because only about half of the deaths are sudden, the data can be applied satisfactorily to incapacitation whether it be due to sudden death or sudden severe illness.
Development of the 1% rule demands that more formal attention be paid to the quantification of recognized risk factors for all health variables and that allowance must also be made for age.
In relation to decisions on fitness to fly, more attention should be paid to absolute personal risk of incapacitation rather than to simple attributable risk of any one condition.
