Today I am in Washington DC with Rob Land and Steve Predmore at the FAA’s Annual Intl Safety Forum. There is an industry call to action regarding professionalism in aviation.

A major item being discussed is pilot fatigue. I for one would love to see changes to our duty/flight time in relation to the time of day we operate. Some in our crew positions/company put productivity in front of safety. I really hope the new FAA rules break up our “highly sought after and quickly dropped” Carribean red-eyes. A fresh crew NEEDS to come out of the hotel and operate back to JFK, no questions asked…
On a positive note, a daytime transcon turn would be fantastic as long as it’s during “normal waking hours”… It could happen.
