It’s one thing for a professional athlete to collapse on the sports field as so many have been wont to do since the roll-out of mRNA vaccines, but it’s something entirely different for a pilot while flying a plane with the lives of hundreds of passengers in the balance.
Now it appears that the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), the body responsible for licensing pilots, has quietly changed the criteria for measuring heart damage in pilots. Until October 2022, pilots were required to pass stringent health tests and have EKG readings of between 0.12 and 0.2. However, from October 26th, the FAA increased that measurement to 0.3. That’s over a 100 percent increase from the low marker.
As Dr. Thomas Levy, practicing cardiologist and author of the paper “Myocarditis: Once rare, now common,” in the journal Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, points out, “This is not a nominal increase in PR interval, but a very large one. In a Harvard study that extended over a 30- to 40-year period, it was found that individuals with PR intervals greater than 0.2 seconds had twice the risk of atrial fibrillation, three times the risk of needing a pacemaker (meaning the presence of advanced degrees of heart block), and nearly a one and a half times increase in all-cause mortality. Furthermore, greater degrees of PR interval prolongation led to an even greater risk.”
Moving the medical goalposts appears to have put the flying public at greater risk of catastrophic harm in the hands of pilots unfit to fly. “Why they made the change is very obscure because extending the PR interval from the acceptable range of 120 to 200 milliseconds to 300 milliseconds does not improve safety,” said Colonel Theresa Long on the Tucker Carlson Tonight Show. “And I would like to see the data and research on which they based that decision. In aviation, we are a data-driven institution, and everything centers around risk mitigation. So, making that broader actually puts the public at greater risk of a pilot having a cardiac event that didn’t get caught because they’ve extended that range. In light of the emerging and overwhelming data showing the cardiac damage from COVID and the COVID vaccines on the cardiac muscle, I can’t imagine why they would make this move.”
While the FAA declined to answer that question when asked by the Tucker Carlson team, Steve Kirsch, the relentless citizen journalist critical of COVID policies, has an idea. “This is a tacit admission from the US government that the COVID vaccine has damaged the hearts of our pilots. Not just a few pilots. A lot of pilots and a lot of damage,” he wrote in a January 17th Substack post. “I’ll take an educated guess as to why they did that. I believe it is because they knew if they kept the original range, too many pilots would have to be grounded. That would be extremely problematic; commercial aviation in the US would be severely disrupted.
“And why did they do that quietly without notifying the public or the mainstream media? I’m pretty sure they won’t tell me, so I’ll speculate: it’s because they didn’t want anyone to know. In other words, the COVID vaccine has seriously injured a lot of pilots, and the FAA knows it and said nothing because that would tip off the country that the vaccines are unsafe. And you aren’t allowed to do that.”
As members of the flying public, we have heard little to no reports on the number of pilots who have collapsed while flying commercial passenger planes. But there are many. A small sample includes a November 22nd Gulf Air flight en route from Bahrain to Paris, forced to make an emergency landing. The pilot was declared dead. Newly hired American Eagle pilot Captain Patrick Ford died on a Chicago to Columbus flight on November 25th, while American Airlines Captain Bob Snow went into cardiac crisis with heart arrhythmia on his approach to Dallas airport. He collapsed after landing and was only resuscitated with three electric shocks to his heart.
While the FAA is putting passenger safety and pilot health behind its desire and political imperative to keep on carrying on, airline executives and government regulators cannot claim that they were not warned. In December 2021, a group of doctors, lawyers, and citizens’ advocates sent a letter clearly describing the risks presented by vaccinated pilots.
“Put simply, any pilot flying right now who has been vaccinated in the U.S. has almost certainly not received an FDA-approved vaccine, as the available J&J, Pfizer, and Moderna shots are not yet FDA-approved. And even were such pilots to have received an FDA-approved vaccine, under relevant federal regulations, the pilots should still not be flying for 12 more months – until such time as at “least one year of post-marketing experience” has occurred after the FDA’s initial approval.
“The reason for this cannot be overstated: history and common sense evince that significant time must elapse post FDA-approval to ensure that new medical products do not end up causing adverse effects (as did Thalidomide and Glyphosate). This is particularly true when the individuals who are receiving such new, experimental medical products are spending significant amounts of time at high altitudes and are in control of large vehicles carrying hundreds of other passengers, who could all die or be severely injured should the operator suffer an adverse health event.”
It can only be a matter of time before a catastrophic air accident occurs due to a pilot’s adverse health event. But the destruction will likely mask the evidence, so it’s quite possible we’ll never know.
