Which of the following statements are correct:; -1: Scuba diving may be practiced without restriction; -2: Many medicines have effects which are incompatible with flight safety; -3: An adequate amount of fluid should be drunk when flying; -4: Alcohol has no effect on the inner ear.

Lifted from Bristol ATP question bank ID no Q3802

My answer was 1,2 & 3 are correct. Does anyone agree? If not, what would your answer be?

I would have to agree with PilotWolf. Scuba Diving should not be practised prior to flying. What was the correct set of answers according to Bristol GS?

Regards Sucba Diving, I know PADI's rules state that;


After a scuba diving you should not fly at an altitude above 1000ft asl within 12 hours of completing a single none compressed dive ( not below 40 feet ) and 18 hours when doing multiple dives, or a single compression dive ( below 40 feet ) and where possible a minimum of 24 hours should be between surfacing and flying.

Not sure if FAA or CAA have different rules or regulations though sorry.

Hope that helps

rest of it go with PW

Not being a doctor I have to take what the CAA tell me at face value, the Janet and John guide to aviation medicine can be found at http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/33/ga_srg_09webssl24.pdf

Section 10 has a bit in about diving.

The correct answer was 2 & 3. But I think the question is badly worded. My understanding was that you must not fly until at least 12 hours after diving. So you can dive all you like, but then you must wait at least 24 hours before flying, so that means there is a restriction on flying, not on diving.

Since the question was Scuba diving may be practiced without restriction

I agreed with the statement and got it wrong. Smile

Then some one is wrong as alcohol will definatetly affect the inner ear.

Also I would agree the poor wording as it a flying exam you would assume that the question relatings to flying and as has been said unsrestricted diving and flting don't (necessarily) mix.

For sure a very badly worded question.

How would you know being a pilot ( or trainee ) about scuba rules, unless you fly and dive?

Its states:

1: Scuba diving may be practiced without restriction;

In what context. Yes scuba diving can be practiced without restriction if you are doing normal dives. But as I said above if you intend to fly then there are recommended restrictions of time before flying, but again depending on what altitude you are flying.

There are also recomendations on Diving after flying, Less restrictive in their time constaints but equally valid.
