The new flight crew member duty and rest requirements published by the FAA is a step in the right direction for pilots flying passengers under Part 121 rules. Pilots not affected by this ruling such as cargo operators, charter, personal, and corporate aviation need tools to combat fatigue.
I recently produced a video to help you recognize and manage fatigue and hope all pilots will review it, especially since the FAA rest requirements are affective two years from now. Remember as pilots we are on our own to combat fatigue. Although the new ruling is a step in the right direction, pilots need to asses their own condition to fly and not fly fatigued.
