FAA Finalizes Rest and Duty Rules!

Airline pilot restingThe FAA has finally published their new rest and duty rules!  You can download your copy here:  Final Flightcrew Member Duty and Rest Rules

There are some very notable changes and exclusions!  Such as:

  • Max duty day 14 hours
  • Max flight time is now 9 hours!
  • Cargo operations are completely exempt!  We guess its because all the cargo pilots have superhuman powers?

We look forward to hearing your comments and opinions!  Please discuss the new rules in our forums here: FAA Rest and Duty Rules Forum
