DIVING & FLYING
The DAN guidelines for flying after diving are:
For a single no-decompression dive, a minimum pre-flight surface interval of 12-hours is suggested. For multiple dives per day or multiple days of diving, a minimum pre-flight surface interval of 18-hours is suggested. For dives requiring decompression stops, there is little evidence on which to base a recommendation. A pre-flight surface interval substantially longer than 18 hours appears prudent.
