Can we compare Airline Pilots fatigue, to that of Flight Instructors? Not only part ORA is missing on FTL and FDT limitations for this group of professionals (referring only to in accordance with part-ORO, which seems unrealistic), but all studies I have found so far are related to those of commercial air operations.
Are Airline Pilots and Flight Instructors subjected to the same environment? Are they flying under the same type of pressure and awareness?
What happens when a FI flies under extremely low temperatures or extremely high temperatures for 4 consecutive hours, VFR, by day or night, having to pay attention and instruct his/her student and ensure flight safety at the same time? What happens when they fly under turbulence? Or in congested airspace? What happens when their duty time is 12 hours for 6 consecutive days, Flight Time Limitation is 8 Hours, sometimes without proper breaks for meals or rest?
Could the number of deaths and economic consequences play a role in general aviation? Or is there something else I am missing?
Why do the civil aviation authorities continue overlooking this of the aviation world?
As a Safety Manager, I am struggling to reply to my Flight Instructor's Fatigue Reports. A little help on this and some insight on the subject would be extremely appreciated.
