Pulmonary fibrosis and aviation?

A relative is suffering from Pulmonary fibrosis. He has had a long flying career as a pilot, first in the RAF and then in the airline business.

We are trying to identify any possible causes.

I'd be interested to know if anyone has heard of Pulmonary fibrosis being linked to the aviation environment. I'm think of bleed air or similar. I haven't found anything on the web but I thought I would try asking the question of a more specialized population.
