FAI condemns the use by athletes, in the misguided belief that they improve performance in the air, of substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Such substances may degrade pilot performance and compromise flight safety. The activities, defined as "doping", are contrary to the FAI's principles of fair play, and are potentially damaging to athletes' health and safety.
Following adoption in 2003 by the FAI General Conference of the World Anti-Doping Code, the FAI Air Sport General Commission (CASI) approved appropriate changes to the FAI General Section. FAI is committed to a programme of anti-doping.
