UNSW Fatigue Survey Report

Survey of Pilot Fatigue for Australian Commercial Pilots

Prof Ann Williamson and Dr Rena Friswell

24 October 2017

This report describes the findings of an independent survey of 1,132 Australian commercial pilots
on their experiences of fatigue while working under CAO 48.0 and various exemptions currently
allowed by CASA. The survey was conducted on-line by Transport and Road Safety (TARS)
Research at the University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney). Invitations to participate were
sent by the Australian Federation of Air Pilots (AFAP) to all their members and advertisements
inviting all commercial pilots to take part in the survey were placed in the fortnightly Aviation pages
of The Australian newspaper over four weeks in June-July 2017.
