Flight Crewmember Duty and Rest Requirements

Abstract:

The purpose of this action is to correct an error in the final regulatory evaluation used to support a January 4, 2012, final rule. FAA will seek comments on a draft supplemental regulatory evaluation before issuing a final correction. The rule amended existing flight, duty, and rest regulations applicable to certificate holders conducting passenger-carrying operations and their flightcrew members operating under 14 CFR part 121. The rule eliminated distinctions between domestic, flag, and supplemental operations. Also, the rule provided different requirements based on the time of day, whether an individual is acclimated to a new time zone, and the likelihood of being able to sleep under different circumstances. This rule improved aviation safety by providing applicable persons with the opportunity for sufficient rest.
