HOW WE STACK UP

NASA research shows that fatigue can impair decision-making after only 8.5 hours at night. So why are Canadian pilots expected to be alert for twice that time?

WHAT WOULD YOU PAY TO HAVE SAFER SKIES?

Ottawa's proposed rules for pilot fatigue fall below what science from NASA research and international best practice recommend.

Canada’s pilots believe that fatigue rules should be based on science – and comparable to those protecting pilots and passengers in the United States.

The government calculates that Canada’s new rules – which fall short of fatigue science and international best practice -- would cost $0.28 per passenger per flight.

Even if it costs twice as much to ensure Canadians – passengers, pilots and the neighbourhoods they fly over – have science-based fatigue rules, isn’t $0.56 per passenger per flight worth it?
