Dealing with distruption in the sky – Should pilots have further psych evaluations?

Veda Shook with the Association of Flight Attendants explains standard procedure in the airline business, and how flight crews are trained to handle emergencies on a commercial flight. Shook also addresses the issue of psychological testing of pilots.
