New Fatigue Regulations


Recommended Posts

It's been years in the making, consultations with industry, comparison to other major regulatory bodies and still won't take effect for at least 2 years.

It's not scary, it's not confusing, it's not overly restrictive.  You just have to play by their rules.  

FRMS is your way around the regs.  Fatigue is a hazard and they are addressing it.  You asked for it and they have delivered.

A CARAC board member once told me that (way back) the idea of duty limits for engineers was thrown around. IN 2005, when they began the.implementation of SMS on all sectors, it was decided that this c

Which is all fine and good until your employer tries to convince you that time spent with the client in the field doesn't count as work, and so you're only entitled to bank flight time + 2 hours again

Well, with regards to slinging mud at the old generation...kinda sound like a melinuim child.   That generation figured out the hard way everything we know today. Many died along the way. All that tra

This is going to work great for heli pilots in a camp, tent, or regular shytehole we live in, mostly. This is really for the overworked, spoiled, but union fixed wing WestJet style pilots saying yes to served meals in the COCKPIT.  If there overworked? WTF are we doing? Anyway, u got 4 years to figure it out. And 12 hours bottle to throttle? Lol.

The one thing I strongly object to is the new 12 hours alcohol free reg. If truly followed this makes a beer or glass of wine prohibited with dinner. This is simply mean spirited. 10 hours bottle to throttle would have been a safety upgrade without making it almost impossible to legally have one drink with dinner. No one wants to fly hung over, however a beer after a long day at work is one of life’s little pleasures. I agree 8 hours bottle to throttle has been abused by some  but 10 hours is safe and reasonable. I’ve worked for some companies with a 10 hour SOP in Ops Manual and this doesn’t make you illegal to have a beer with dinner. TC you are like the Grinch, and this rule will be broken by many I predict.
