Brent Bergan Posted June 8, 2008 Report Share Posted June 8, 2008 I'm currently working on an article regarding the best practices for standing a 24 hour watch, duty rotation and the factors that play into fatigue. If you happen by this post, please write out what you do, how long you've been flying with your operation, and how your unit handles the 24 hour duty. Also add in, if it were up to you, you'd do this, and this is why? I'm also interested in operators' crew mission time and flight time limitations. Generally for CG helicopter pilots, we are limited to six hours of flight time before we bag out and need a replacement crew, or 12 hours of crew mission time, and require 10 hours of uninterrupted crew rest to reset our clocks. Our crews stand 24 hour duty (each station changes their watch at a their own time schedule), but we have a quality operational manual which limits our flight and crew mission time as mentioned above. What about your operation? Thanks, Brent Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
