DGCA to test aviation personnel for drug use

In a bid to make flying safer, flight crew and air traffic controllers (ATCO) will now be tested for drug abuse, just like breath-analyser (BA) checks to ensure that they are not tipsy. DGCA chief, Arun Kumar has ordered “random drug testing for the consumption of (10) psychoactive substances” like cocaine, marijuana/hashish, MDMA or ecstasy and morphine/opiate.
