Developing fatigue management policies and procedures under Appendix 1
The table below lists the steps required to develop fatigue management policies and procedures under Appendix 1.
|1||If you are a current AOC holder you will need to inform CASA that you intend to implement fatigue management policies and procedures based on Appendix 1 and when you intend to transition.
This step does not apply to new AOC holders.
|2||Specify limits for flight time, sleep opportunity, extensions of a flight duty period, off-duty period, and cumulative flight time. Your specified limits cannot be more than any maximum stipulated in Appendix 1 or less than the minimum stipulated in Appendix 1.||CAAP 48-1(1) Appendix C|
|3||Develop procedures to meet limits contained in Appendix 1. These procedures must provide for compliance and fulfillment of limits set out in the appendix (mentioned in step 2).||CAAP 48-1(1) Appendix A|
|4||If your pilots will also be required to operate to other appendices you need to develop procedures to meet requirements for operations under multiple appendices. These procedures must manage flight-crew-member transitions between appendices, and meet the requirements of CAO 48.1 subsection 13 and subparagraph 15.2(d).||CAAP 48-1(1) Appendix B|
|5||If you are an existing AOC holder transitioning to the new rules please make sure that your operations manual addresses the requirements under Appendix 1 and continue to use the existing process of submitting your amended operations manual to your regional CASA office for review.
If you are a new AOC holder choosing to operate under Appendix 1, you must ensure your AOC application addresses the requirements under Appendix 1 and submit it to the CASA Permission Application Centre, Brisbane.
Note: All limits and procedures must be documented in your operations manual. CASA must be satisfied that the limits and procedures in the operations manual are sufficient to reasonably ensure that pilots will not exceed safe levels of fatigue while operating an aircraft.
