Operating under a single appendix
The diagram below provides an overview of what you need to consider when operating under a single appendix.
Pilots must operate within the limits set out in their organisation’s operations manual.
Under the fatigue management rules, operators can decide what limits to specify in their operations manual, as long as they do not exceed the limits in the relevant appendix. The limits must also reflect the organisation’s hazard-identification and risk-management protocols.
What to record in the operations manual:
- Documented limits that do not exceed those in the applicable appendix (1–6).
- Rostering procedures to ensure pilots do not exceed the documented limits.
- Procedures to manage fatigue risks associated with specific rostering practices permitted under each appendix. For example, employing augmented crew operations, split-duty operations and/or planning to use delayed reporting time (permitting use of notification time of less than 10 hours).
- Fatigue risk management and training that meets the requirements of appendices 2–6.
- Subsection 15—Additional operator obligations.
- Fitness for duty; managing employee responsibilities; access to meals; record keeping; reporting; home base; publishing rosters.
- Subsection 14—Operator obligations.
