Operational Experience in Fatigue Management Decision Making

Jul 13, 2023


Proper fatigue management requires the use of operational experience to be incorporated into the decision-making process. Often, this has been limited to an operator’s organisational experience (e.g., management perspective). However, a strong approach to fatigue management includes the “operational experience” from  many sources, including the flight crew. A complete picture of fatigue risk requires information on fatigue experience from flight crew involved in all types of operations conducted and from the perspective of each crew member.
