I agree about some on this list that don't want to do any research but want to take shots.. But I want to repeat this so it doesn't get lost in there invevitable flames.. If some want to follow DAN's recomendation I have NO problem with that, but for me it constitutes and unnecessary precaution to a problem that doesn't really exist..

To answer Kendall's question, I have gotten directly out of the water after a 300' dive and went directly to the airport with my hair still wet and my gear still dripping.. However, this past weekend we were diving Ginnie Springs on Sunday night and I was using a 32% with a max. depth of 92', and we did use an appropriate 02 for deco gas..

I have in the past put out the formula, and even did the math, as to why worrying about a blanket statement such as diving then flying within 12 hours isn't anything to worry about so anyone wants to do a search they should feel free.. The short answer is based upon the required cabin pressure there isn't anything more dangerous of flying after diving then it is ascending from 15'..
