Problems of Crew Fatigue Management in Airline Operations

Crew fatigue is increasingly recognised as a major threat to air traffic safety. Although there is plenty of research in risks related to human fatigue in different industries, more research is needed to precisely establish the correlation of crew fatigue and risk in airline operations. Current practice of fatigue risk management through appliance of flight time limitations has proven inadequate. On the other hand, the emerging methods of systematic fatigue risk management are heavily dependent on an organisation’s safety culture. This work outlines the basic principles of risk management, observed problems of flight time limitations scheme, anticipated problems of a fatigue risk management system and proposed solutions.
