Should Airline Pilots be Given a brief health Checkup before each flight?


A major airline's pilot died from a heart attack last week while flying across country. The pilot took over and none of the passengers knew the situation until they landed. Should pilots and co pilots get a health checkup before each long distance flight? Isn't this a matter of public safety and trust?

    I think a doctor should give a quick check up,especially if they have been on a long layover .

    Its fortunate that the co pilot did not have any major health issues as well...
