Abstract The Indian aviation industry has witnessed significant growth in recent years, making safety and regulatory compliance paramount. To maintain the highest standards of safety, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has implemented rigorous measures, including breathalyser testing for pilots and crew members. This abstract explores the significance of breathalyser testing in the Indian aviation sector, focusing on its role in enhancing safety and ensuring compliance with international aviation standards.

Breathalyser testing has become a crucial component of the DGCA's safety protocols, aiming to prevent pilots and crew from operating aircraft under the influence of alcohol. This paper examines the key elements of the DGCA's alcohol testing regulations, including permissible blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limits, testing procedures, prohibition periods, and penalties for violations. The strict adherence to these regulations is essential to guarantee the safety of air travel and to maintain public trust in the industry.

The abstract also delves into the impact of breathalyser testing on pilot behaviour and the overall safety culture within the Indian aviation sector. By acting as a strong deterrent against alcohol consumption before or during duty, these tests contribute to a safer and more responsible aviation workforce.
Furthermore, this abstract discusses the role of breathalyser testing in aligning the Indian aviation industry with international standards, particularly those set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The adoption of stringent testing procedures demonstrates India's commitment to upholding global aviation safety norms.
Finally, this paper highlights the importance of continuous monitoring and improvement of breathalyser testing programs, including pilot education and rehabilitation efforts for those facing alcohol-related issues. Such initiatives not only enhance safety but also promote a culture of responsibility and accountability within the industry.
In conclusion, breathalyser testing has emerged as a pivotal tool for enhancing safety and compliance in the Indian aviation industry. It not only aligns with international standards but also plays a vital role in fostering a culture of safety and responsibility among aviation personnel. As the industry continues to expand, the strict enforcement of alcohol testing regulations remains essential to safeguarding the integrity of Indian aviation and ensuring the well-being of passengers and crew.
