Fatigue Management Course

Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

General Information

Hosted by the Association Luxembourgeoise des Pilotes de Ligne (ALPL), IFALPA is presenting our new Fatigue Management Course in Luxembourg, Luxembourg on 7 and 8 December 2022.

The IFALPA Fatigue Management (FM) Course is intended for all parties involved in the management of fatigue in air operations. The course is not intended to replicate or replace basic FM training for line pilots, which is usually provided by the operator.

Participation in the course is suited to:

  • Pilot members of an IFALPA Member Association (MA) intending to be a “fatigue-management-champion” with their MA.
  • Pilot representatives participating in their operator’s Fatigue Safety Action Group (FSAG) or fatigue committee.
  • Other FSAG participants, such as: Safety Managers, Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS) Managers, and Regulators involved in the oversight of FM.

Course Facilitators will lead course participants through the established fatigue science and standards to progressively build up their knowledge of the available resources so they are able to put these into practice in real-world situations.

Two days of instruction and discussions in FM culminate in simulated FSAG practical exercises. This is an intensive course and attendees should expect a full interactive schedule and course prereading requirements. 

The cost of the Course is $500.00 CAD including coffee breaks and lunches.
