Make a request

Request for Autopsy

Please submit a request when someone you know has died suddenly, during or after a flight. We have a mobile team available to be on site within 24 hours inside Europe.

We also mediate in organising a post mortem, on behalf of the family concerned, by organising local experts and facilities in other parts of the world.

There will be costs involved and the Foundation will not always have sufficient funding to pay for the research itself. In these cases a financial contribution is asked for by the family itself.

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.
