The EU has scientific evidence showing that its current pilot fatigue law is potentially unsafe.

Yet this evidence is not reflected in the proposal for new EU flight time limits for pilots and cabin crew, issued on 25 July 2013 by the European Commission. Instead, the proposal reflects the commercial interest of airlines which lobbied strongly for lax fatigue rules.

If not changed, the new rules will reduce safety levels in several EU countries, e.g. by allowing a pilot to land a plane after having been awake for over 22 hours.

The EU Parliament must stop this. MEPs must request the Commission to change its proposal, base it on scientific evidence and make your safety as a passenger their Number One Priority!
