ORO.FTL.110 Operator responsibilities

An operator shall:

(a)  publish duty rosters sufficiently in advance to provide the opportunity for crew members to plan adequate rest;

(b)  ensure that flight duty periods are planned in a way that enables crew members to remain sufficiently free from fatigue so that they can operate to a satisfactory level of safety under all circumstances;

(c)  specify reporting times that allow sufficient time for ground duties;

(d)  take into account the relationship between the frequency and pattern of flight duty periods and rest periods and give consideration to the cumulative effects of undertaking long duty hours combined with minimum rest periods;

(e)  allocate duty patterns which avoid practices that cause a serious disruption of an established sleep/work pattern, such as alternating day/night duties;

(f)  comply with the provisions concerning disruptive schedules in accordance with ARO.OPS.230;

(g)  provide rest periods of sufficient time to enable crew members to overcome the effects of the previous duties and to be rested by the start of the following flight duty period;

(h)  plan recurrent extended recovery rest periods and notify crew members sufficiently in advance;

(i)  plan flight duties in order to be completed within the allowable flight duty period taking into account the time necessary for pre-flight duties, the sector and turnaround times;

(j)  change a schedule and/or crew arrangements if the actual operation exceeds the maximum flight duty period on more than 33% of the flight duties in that schedule during a scheduled seasonal period.
