EU FTL: 10 minutes to have your voice heard!
Aircrew fatigue is a serious safety issue in Europe and beyond. The new EU regulation on FTL has been in force for one year now. In this context, the EU decided to review it by asking the pilots their opinion on it. The results will be used by a research group to carry out a data-driven scientific study to review its effectiveness.
This is a very important opportunity for all of us to have our voice heard! We therefore strongly encourage you to fill in the online survey and to share it to as many Belgian/European pilots as possible! The survey closes on 11 April, so your input is needed as soon as possible.
This survey will allow the researchers to identify the most pressing 2 Fatigue Hotspots, out of a list of 6 key issues of concern.
The survey contains many questions. Therefore – and to allow you to complete it within +/- 10 minutes – we advise you to focus on the ESSENTIAL parts of the survey. This means:
=> Fill in ONLY those questions that are MANDATORY (marked with a red asterix).
=> Early on, 6 key FTL issues will appear. Click all those issues that affect you in your daily operations.
=> Do absolutely provide a RATING of the fatiguing impacts on the proposed 1-9 SCALEs.
=> Provide your type of AIRLINE (at the survey’s beginning) and type of CONTRACT (end of survey).
=> Reply to the more detailed ‘text box’ questions ONLY if you wish so & have time.
Many THANKS for YOUR COOPERATION!
