Question: If a pilot has psychiatric illness, will he or she be able to fly? One of my pilot friends is on antidepressants because he has an illness. Physically he is healthy, mentally not sure sometimes....before he became a pilot he was hospitalized for his illness. I don't think his airline company know he is taking these ills or has a mental illness. Is it risky for him to be flying? Actually he is a helicopter pilot who lives and flies in the Caribbean

Answer: He needs to be reported to the FAA ASAP. Contact a Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) Peoples lifes are at stake…
