AFAP/UNSW COMMERCIAL PILOT FATIGUE SURVEY NOW OPEN

We recently informed members of an upcoming Pilot Fatigue Survey, developed by the Transport and Road Safety (TARS) Research Centre for the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

CASA have commissioned an independent review of Civil Aviation Order 48.1 Instrument 2013, which continues to be delayed. To inform our submission to this review and provide data to improve fatigue management practices, the AFAP is collaborating with the Transport & Road Safety (TARS) Research Centre in the School of Aviation at UNSW to survey the fatigue experiences of Australian commercial pilots under the existing legislation.

The survey is now live and will be open until Monday 26 June.

The survey is being developed and conducted by the TARS Research Centre under their independent ethics criteria and will seek to engage as wide a range of commercial pilots as possible. All Australian commercial pilots are welcome to participate in this anonymous and voluntary 20 minute survey and we encourage members to share this link with their associates.

The results for the survey are anticipated in August.

What is Transport and Road Safety (TARS)?

Transport and Road Safety (TARS) Research is a research group at UNSW dedicated entirely to road and transport safety research. The philosophy of the road and transport safety research focus at the TARS is the safe system principle, commonly used in occupational health and safety and adopted by the Australian Transport Council in 2004 


The AFAP is the largest industrial and professional association representing Australian commercial air pilots.
