Is flying (as the pilot) stateside actually considered "hazardous duty" in terms of applying for CRSC?

I keep finding sources claiming flight pay is a type of hazardous duty incentive.

Thanks for the help

You must show that the injury was directly caused by the act of flying. An example of this would be that you are making a landing and it was so hard that you broke your back.

Hazardous Duty

Hazardous duty means activities such as diving, parachuting, or flying. You have to be able to show that your injury occurred while you were involved in the hazardous activity. Unlike service-connected disability, it will not be enough to show the disability arose just while you were on active duty. In other words, injuries that did not arise directly from your engagement in the hazardous activity (for example, a car accident while on your way to the airfield) will not qualify as combat-related

Tricky thing about flight status, is that there is documentation, & multiple studies that show a relationship between vibration dose (total flight time), & back conditions, as well as other conditions caused by whole body vibrations.

Found this in AFI 36-3212:

3.27.2.1. Combat-related Disabilities. The PEB will make a combat-related disability determination for: 3.27.2.1.1. Armed Conflict. See paragraph 3.26 and Attachment 1. 3.27.2.1.2. Extra Hazardous Service. An assignment to a military occupation entitling the member to hazardous duty pay, such as parachute, flight deck, demolition, experimental stress, or leprosarium duty. It includes flight duty only if it involves other than routine training flights, and there is enough evidence of record to show that an extremely hazardous duty factor was present.

Thanks for the info, the Army has pretty much the same thing.
