What is Aerotoxic Syndrome?
The term Aerotoxic Syndrome describes acquired chronic ill health caused by exposure to toxic oil fumes present in the breathing air of most commercial jets. Unaware, thousands of people suffer every day, without knowing about this health and safety hazard.
Three scientists from France, Australia and the USA were the first to identify the problem in 1999. It is known to affect the central nervous system and brain, causing a range of acute symptoms and long-term ill-health.
Who are we?
Established in 2007, the Aerotoxic Association was founded by BAe 146 Training Captain John Hoyte at the Houses of Parliament, in London/UK.
Since then, the Association has provided guidance and advice to thousands of airline pilots, cabin crew and passengers in regards to Aerotoxic Syndrome.
Our main Missions are to :
- Share evidence with the public about the harm associated with poor Aircraft Cabin Air Quality
- Provide Networking across Social Media
- Expose the 70-year Aerotoxic Cover-up
Captain Hoyte had to retire due to ongoing severe symptoms of Aerotoxic Syndrome. He was one of 27 BALPA (British Airline Pilots Association) pilots tested by University College London. All 27 participants showed evidence of toxic poisoning and reduced cognitive function.
