The Global Cabin Air Quality Executive (GCAQE) established in 2006 is the lead organisation internationally focussed on addressing the issue of bleed air contamination. There is extensive data complied over the last 60 years confirming that contaminated air poses both a flight safety and health risk for those exposed that should not be ignored.
This overview document provides a one page ‘contaminated air made simple’ introduction, followed by a more in-depth look at the different aspects of the contaminated air debate; it is intended to provide readers with an insight into the issue only. It should be reviewed in conjunction with the educational film on the GCAQE website and other additionally available books, literature and peer reviewed papers. Future updates of this document can be obtained from the GCAQE website.
