• Diving and Flying

    The risk of decompression sickness is increased by diving and flying.

    Divers should avoid flying above 2000ft in an unpressurised aircraft or in a commercial aircraft for a minimum of 12 hours after surfacing from a single no-compression dive or 18 hours following repetitive dives or multiples days of diving.

    These recommended pre-flight surface intervals do not guarantee avoidance of decompression sickness. Longer surface intervals will decrease the risk.
