RE: Maximum flight duty day
The following change will be incorporated in our next Flight Operations Manual (FOM) update but this requirement is effective immediately:
Maximum flight duty day: No FSC pilot (CFI, staff or student) may fly past the 12th hour of their duty day calculated from their initial show time at the Aviation Center or on Campus. The 12 hour limit is a maximum, so pilots should plan their day to finish their flight activities as early as possible to eliminate insidious effects of fatigue.
