Twenty-Seventh (27th) Joint Meeting, RTCA Special Committee 189/EUROCAE Working Group 53: Air Traffic Services (ATS) Safety and Interoperability Requirements, 27528-27529 [06-4363]

Download as PDF 27528 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 91 / Thursday, May 11, 2006 / Notices exceed scheduled completion time and exceed the duty time limit. Does section 135.263(d) excuse a certificate holder or pilot from exceeding the 14-hour duty time limitation in the above situations? No. 3 (SamaritansAir, Aviation Consultants): Scenario/Questions: A pilot is required to respond to a pager and be at the airport within 30 minutes of the page. He is also required to be ‘‘on call’’ at the airport starting from 0700. The ‘‘call’’ may not come in until 1600. His duty time is considered to start at 1600 and continues until 0600 the next day. 1. May the pilot perform the above operation without an uninterrupted rest period ‘‘free from all restraint’’ from the certificate holder? 2. May a Part 135 pilot fly under Part 91 rules for a ‘‘reposition’’ or ‘‘ferry’’ flight with non-essential flight crew or passengers on board who are nonpaying ‘‘customers’’ of the certificateholder, when the ‘‘sole’’ intent is to circumvent the 14-hour duty limitation and weather limitations if the flight had to be flown under Part 135 rules? 3. May late arriving passengers be called an ‘‘unexpected’’ delay as a way to circumvent and extend the 14-hour duty time limitation? No. 4 (Era Aviation): Scenario/ Questions: A Part 135 (one pilot crew) comes on duty at 5:30 a.m. and completes three hours of commercial flight time by 15:15 p.m. The operator receives a mission for the next day in another state and the pilot must depart immediately to ferry the aircraft to the new location at which he will give it to the pilot who will fly the new mission. At that point, the pilot ferrying the aircraft will be free of any duty with the carrier for a week. 1. If it becomes necessary to deliver the aircraft to the new pilot, may the ferry pilot overfly the 14-hour duty day which began at 5:30 a.m., assuming he will be off duty for a week upon delivering the aircraft? 2. If it becomes necessary to deliver the aircraft to the new pilot, may the ferry pilot overfly his original eight hours of flight time, assuming he will be off duty for a week upon delivering the aircraft? 3. Is the assumption correct that all flight time following the original three hours flown under Part 135 may be considered Part 91 flight time and thus free of Part 135 restrictions? 4. Is the assumption correct that all duty after the original Part 135 duty period that ended at 12:30 p.m. may be considered non-Part 135 duty, and thus free of Part 135 restrictions? No. 5 (Kyle Opp): Scenario/Questions: A 2-pilot crew receives 24 hours free of duty [on Day 1]. Duty time starts 1 hour prior to scheduled departure, and ends 30 minutes after actual arrival time. Duty time includes 1 hour before scheduled departure and 30 minutes after actual arrival. On Day 2 duty time started at 0700z. The scheduled and actual data are as follows: Scheduled Actual Flight time Duty time at arrival Leg 1 0800–1000 ...................................................................... Leg 2 1300–1430 ...................................................................... Leg 3 1730–2000 ...................................................................... Scheduled: 13.5 hrs .................................................................. 0900–1100 ....................................................... 1415–1545 ....................................................... 1900–2130 ....................................................... Actual: 15 hrs ................................................... 2.0 1.5 2.5 ........................ 4:00 8:45 14:30 ........................ 1. Is the crew prohibited from taking off or boarding Part 135 passengers knowing they will exceed their 14-hour duty day and will actually arrive without the required lookback rest within the previous 24 hours? 2. Can it still be ‘‘circumstances beyond the control of the operator’’ when the operator and crew has the knowledge that Leg 3 while on the ground using actual flight/arrival times knows they will violate the lookback rest requirements? If they proceed anyway, under what section would the FAA take enforcement action? 3. Can the 30 minutes of duty time after actual arrival be waived by the crew, even if it is proscribed in the FAA approved operations manual? If not, must the crew calculate that into the final leg to insure they return with at least 30 minutes left in their duty period? cchase on PROD1PC60 with NOTICES Comments Your comments should address the 6 points raised below. Responses that include these elements provide the FAA a meaningful basis for determining its final responses. 1. What are your views on how the FAA should answer the requesters’ questions stated above? VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:29 May 10, 2006 Jkt 208001 2. What are your views on how the FAA intends to address the issues about late arriving passengers or cargo being an unforeseen circumstance under section 135.263(d) and the timely receipt of section 135.267(d) rest? 3. What industry operational practices support your views? Please provide documentation of such practices. 4. What is the safety policy that supports your views or practices? 5. What regulatory history supports your position? 6. In your opinion, are there any prior FAA interpretations that are controlling or that are at least instructive on the matter?
