New Rules for Airline Pilots
Must spend more time between shifts
Airline pilots will be spending more time on the ground in between shifts thanks to new rules passed by the FAA Wednesday.
Under the new regulations, pilots will be getting ten hours between shifts – that’s two more than they get now.
The new rules also require 30 consecutive hours a week off the job and flight times must be no longer than 8 or 9 hours.
The new rules went into effect to help fight pilot fatigue.
