Prevent Risk for Optimal Safety in the Air and on the Ground
Featuring and FAA Review by John Duncan, Manager of Flight Standards Air Transportation Division, FAA
A UNIQUE FORUM THAT FOCUSES ON SOLUTIONS
Major changes in both culture and training must be made to successfully manage fatigue hazards and comply with the latest regulations.
The NTSB investigation of Continental Express Flight 3407 crash in Buffalo, NY has raised a most critical concern on pilot fatigue in the aviation industry. This detrimental mishap created an industry wake-up call to the serious safety issue of flight crew fatigue, leading to multiple congressional hearings and reviews from regulatory agencies such as the FAA and EASA.
When fatigue sets in, judgment is the first casualty, exponentially increasing the risk of an aircraft malfunction or flight accident. Lack of proper rest can produce physical and mental decrements in attention, vigilance and decision-making that will increase the risk of human error and result in fatalities and injuries.
