Safe travel depends on rested pilots.
Help us send a strong message to the Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport to protect the safety of passengers, flight crews and the public by ensuring Canada’s regulations:
- Recognize the scientific limits of human physiology;
- Protect pilots and passengers of all sizes of aircraft – whether they carry passengers or cargo – with the same protective fatigue limits, coming into force at the same time;
- Limit duty periods on long-haul flights that begin after 5:00 p.m. to 10 hours (which would entail 8.5 hours of flight time), in line with NASA research findings; and
- Ensure that any Fatigue Risk Management System is based on science-based prescriptive limits, requires independently verifiable data, and includes stringent oversight.
