One thought on “AMC1 ORO.FTL.250 Fatigue Management Training

  1. In our so called fatigue training there is nothing on how to complete a fatigue report form and nothing on the specifics of the FTL scheme, applicable to my airline. In addition cabin crew are unable to understand chapter 7 and it seems to be written in a confused manner right with this final scope: leave rules unclear that can lead to interpretation.

    Is there anything crew can do to require a proper training which allow every individual to understand the rostering rules and the real fatigue countermeasures?

    Why fatigue is not prevented but the airline can leave each individual to experience it?

    It is difficult to make self prevention…and it is a very unsafe practice.
