Civil aviation minister Suresh Prabhu recently launched the official mobile application Skyfit for the aviation fraternity on January 16 during the Global Aviation Summit in Mumbai.

 
The mobile app is developed to address the occupational stress of air traffic controllers, pilots, cabin crews, ground handlers and flyers. The unprecedented growth in aviation has posed severe threat to the safety of aviation, in terms of the pressure created by capacity versus demand, on the existing infrastructure and resources. The worst hit of all is the human resource. The occupational stress due to cognitive work load of the personnel, especially in aviation can be a challenge for the safe aviation. Various measures have been discussed in past like improving job planning and reliability of the work systems, improving the work environment, reduction of working hours.
 
AAI has developed simple breathing exercises, in consultation with a senior medical consultant and have found encouraging results in managing the stress of the aviation personnel, by just improving the way we breathe.
 
Prabhu said when India is poised to cater to the next six billion people and become a global leader, it also has to be equipped to address the stress level of the human force and their quality of life. The solution lies in Skyfit, he said.
