No-fly time is the minimum surface time after a dive which is recommended to wait before flying with an airplane. During this time, flying or traveling to a higher altitude should be avoided to minimise the risk of decompression sickness (DCS).
Suunto dive computers display surface time since the previous dive and a countdown time for recommended no-fly time. On Suunto D5 the no-fly time indicator will be visible on all views and is easy to identify by a plane icon with a countdown timer underneath. The surface time is indicated by a clock icon and a timer.
Once the no-fly time has ended, you can enter and fly with a normal airplane which is pressurized up to 3000 m.
Note: No-fly time is always at least 12 hours long and equals the necessary desaturation time based on your previous dive(s) if the no-fly time is longer than 12 hours. For desaturation times shorter than 75 minutes, no no-fly time will be displayed.
