Background: One of the most sensitive and costly carriers are pilots, such that any time and due to any reason a pilot is unable to accomplish his duty, practically all prior investments have been wasted. In this study we have tried to medically analyze the disability and early retirement in the IRIAF pilots.
Materials & Methods: In this study the personal and work information of all the pilots that are disable or have early retirement due to medical reasons between 1371 and 1382 have been studied and analyzed by the SPSS software.
Results: Out of the 49 disable pilots most (39 people) were tactical fighter pilots. The variation in profession was statistically significant (P<0.01). Most of the personnel studied were colonels (24 people or 49%) and the variation in military insignia was statistically significant. The average years at service were 23.86 and the average years of service that were left unaccomplished were 6.14. The most unaccomplished years in service were 10 (20.4%) and in total more than 201 years of service had been lost. Comparison of the pilot's average years of disability and those of other personnel shows no significant statistical difference in this studied parameter. The difference in the spread of heart disease in our study (46.9%) with that study (38%) was statistically significant.
Conclusion: Considering the results obtained the least average service age and most of the disable and early retired pilots of all professions were tactical fighter pilots, so special attention to them seems necessary. The most popular reason for disability and early retirement were found to be heart disorders. It is advised that for the better health of this group and decrease in cost, prevention and more exact heart checkups in the annual checkups be considered.
