Abstract:

The issues and concerns of pregnancy and flying are complex. Knowledge of the effects of the flying environment on pregnancy is incomplete. Numerous legal and ethical issues complicate study of the controversies. Until further information is available, the Army likely will maintain a conservative policy of restricting flying duties during pregnancy, primarily for the safety of the unborn child.
