ED Decision 2023/023/R

Flight and duty time limitations and rest requirements for commercial air transport with aeroplanes — night duties and late finish duties

CS-FTL.1 —  Issue 1, Amendment 1 | AMC/GM Part-ORO — Issue 2, Amendment 24

This Decision incorporates the scientific recommendations of the first study on ‘Effectiveness of Flight Time Limitation (FTL)’ in relation to night duties and late finish duties into the regulatory framework under Commission Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 to mitigate the risk of the onset and accumulation of fatigue for aircrews.

The objective is to prevent the accumulation of abnormal amounts of fatigue for aircrews by considering the latest scientific knowledge and best practices available as regards fatigue risk management.

This is expected to improve safety.
