DGCA Forms Committee to Review Guidelines On Rest Period To Pilots


Rest periods given to pilots in India are not as per the international guidelines. International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has reportedly pulled up the aviation regulator over the Flight and Duty Time Limitation (FDTL) regulations that are there at present during its audit last year and it will keep following this up with the regulator.

After ICAO rapped the regulator, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has constituted a committee to review the FDTL regulations and changes are expected in two to three months. DGCA-constituted Committee is being headed by Flight Inspection Directorate of the regulator. The committee has sought suggestions from various organisations including airlines. Air India and Rotary Wing Society of India (RWSI) have already given their suggestions.

Aviation experts say that international norms are not being followed by Airlines at present on fatigue risk management. ICAO has made amendments in guidelines on “Operation of Aircraft” saying that a more scientific FDTL should be implemented by operators worldwide and International Aircraft Transport Association (IATA) has endorsed it.
