Welcome to Ikaros

Non profit Foundation for Post Mortem research of prematurely deceased cockpit- & cabin crew members  and airline passenger.

As a complication of the corona pandemic worldwide has our team decided to stop our research. The foundation has been terminated since 25-03-2021.

It turns out that the damage observed in the brain and heart of those who have died of corona are similar as the prematurely deceased airline personnel. It is not possible at the moment to distinguish between one and the other.

This website will be on air for a short time.

With kind regards,

Michel Mulder


Initial research has indicated a possible correlation between long term low level exposure to contaminated bleed air in jet aircraft and subsequent observed damage to the brain, heart and Peripheral Nervous System. This foundation is created to further research on what has become known as the Aerotoxic Syndrome.

Ikaros Foundation is in the proces of registering as a tax-deductable organisation under Dutch law.
