EU exit

Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:Aircrew Fatigue: A Review of Research Undertaken on Behalf of the UK Civil Aviation Authority
Description:Extensive research on flight crew fatigue has produced a computerised model known as 'SAFE' (System for Aircrew Fatigue Evaluation). This model predicts the likely fatigue effects of varying flight crew rosters. The objective was to provide CAA Flight Operations Policy with a tool to evaluate industry proposals for variations to flight crew rosters. Since delivery of the model 18 months ago it has, on average, been used in assessment of approximately 2-3 industry applications per month. Initial work on this subject has been published previously, but is updated in this final report, which includes the most recent studies.
