Join the Campaign! 14 May 2012, Cologne - Safe Crew Fatigue Rules Now!

04/04/2012

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is in the process of drafting the future rules that will regulate future flight and duty time limitations. They released a revised proposal on 18 January, which is not acceptable as it can put flight safety at risk. Although an improvement compared to the first proposal of Dec 2010, this text still disregards decades of scientific evidence and does not take into account many of the scientists’ recommendations.

As a consequence, European stakeholders, including ECA, made extensive comments to this proposal. These comments will be reviewed in a final meeting in Cologne on 15-16 May. At this occasion, ECA and ETF (European Transport Workers’ Federation) will be organising on 14 May a gathering of pilots and cabin crew in order to explain to EASA our concerns on these future rules.

Join the action! This is about you, your future, your safety and that of your passengers.
