Non Optng Crew & Fdtl

Fri Dec 10, 2004 10:04 pm

Is a Non operating crew travelling on board in the cockpit considered as on duty & a part of FDTL [Flight Duty Time Limitation] applies.
Any Pilots out there with answers.

Yes, generally.
For example, if you were to operate a flight immediately upon arriving at the destination, the time spent in deadheading is considered duty.
Likewise, specified rest generally must be provided if not operating until the next rotation.

Lets rephrase it:-
If Pilot A travels Jumpseat in his own airline,after operating a sector.
If Pilot A travels Commercial in another Airline,after operating a sector.
To reach a place X a distance Y away.
Is it part of his FDTL.Since in both cases Pilot A is just a PaX or maybe a non optng crewmember.

Yes, both the same, whether positioning on the pilots own airline, or another.
It does indeed count for flight duty time.

Out here if a pilot travels SNY[Junpseat] after a flight it counts as part of FDTL hrs.
Whereas if he travels commercial it does not.
I feel its a wrong rule.
