Description

Fatigue is a hazard faced by most aviation operations. Research indicates that fatigue is an issue not only in long-haul flights involving significant time zone changes or all-night operations, but across all segments of aviation. A number of factors may make it difficult to reliably estimate your own alertness and performance, increasing your chance of fatigue-related mistakes and accidents.

During this course, you will review scenarios that include long duty days with various interruptions and a scenario that includes multi-day assignments with time zone changes. You will identify a variety of issues such as sleep deprivation, jet lag, lifestyle, diet, and stimulants and methods to mitigate these issues.
