CHIRP Air Transport FEEDBACK Edition 141

CHIRP Air Transport FEEDBACK Edition 141 focuses on fatigue and tiredness resulting from maximised duty times as companies ramp up operations now that international COVID restrictions have been relaxed.  There are also reports describing normalised deviance in the engineering and flight crew environments where people have routinely cut corners in an attempt to meet the task.  The rules and procedures are there for a reason and such temptations should be resisted. ‘Just Culture’ plays an important role in this by providing an environment where people can honestly report such conflicts so that those in management positions can change priorities or tasks in light of the realities of the new world we operate within.
