ECA Presents its Position on Cabin Air Contamination

Kris Van der Plas was invited to the GCAQE conference (Global Cabin Air Quality Executive) where he presented the recently adopted ECA position on cabin air contamination (see position paper). GCAQE has a diverse membership from pilot unions (ECA and non ECA members), cabin crew unions and the union of gas turbine engineers from the offshore oil industry. The conference gave an update on the latest research on blood tests, developments in the (oil) industry, possible medical treatments, how to correctly inform members and discussions in various international bodies (EASA, ASD-STAN, ASHRAE, etc.).
