Does it still happen in airlines were if the other crew member needs to leave the Flight Deck for whatever reason the other crew member will don the O2 Mask if they are above FL250 just in case something happens?
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 4):|
If there is a cabin crew in the flight deck,when a flt crew is out of the flight deck,does the 2nd flying member need to be wearing the O2 mask or have quick access to it.
|Quoting KAUSpilot (Reply 3):|
|Quoting KAUSpilot (Reply 5):|
They are still required to don(wear) the O2 mask even if a cabin crewmember is accompanying them on the flight deck.

Many apologies for the multiple posting...I can't edit or remove them.
|Quoting got2fly (Reply 6):|
We have no requirement to don O2 masks at my carrier. If one pilot needs to leave the flight deck during the flight the other just makes sure their seatbelt is fastened and if comms are on loud speaker they put their headset back on.
|Quoting KAUSpilot (Reply 5):|
The thought process behind the rule is that if the one pilot on the flight deck does not don his mask quickly enough during a rapid depressurization, the flight may be doomed because the remaining pilot(s) are now locked out of the flight deck or stuck in a place in the cabin where they are connected to O2.
|Quoting Bellerophon (Reply 8):|
Those who operate under FAA regulations should be careful, when answering questions, not to inadvertently imply that FAA regulations apply to all aircraft and carriers, especially when the original poster is from the UK not the USA.
|Quoting ThrottleHold (Reply 9):|
Only if a quick donning type O2 mask is not available.
|Quoting smartt1982 (Reply 7):|
Would this still be the case if the cabin crew had been trained in the use of the Flight Deck O2? Is that not the reason that airlines have a cabin crew sit up front when a pilot has to step out? I guss it would cover both security as well as this safety issue with O2.
|Quoting longhauler (Reply 10):|
And that is, each governing body has different rules, and what applies to FAA, may not apply to other countries, regardless of where they fly.
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 24):|
What about the FA in the Flight deck with the single pilot while the 2nd pilot is out of the cockpit....Will the mask be donned by both.
|Quoting smartt1982 (Reply 14):|
Do guys/girls actually do this i.e. is it sticly adhered to or not?
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 26):|
Which regulatory are you reffering to.....
|Quoting longhauler (Reply 27):|
I wasn't referring to any. Just stating that not every country's regulations require that a F/A be in the cockpit, when a pilot is alone. For example, in Canada, CARs so not require it.
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 28):|
The requirement was for a safety reason.Any idea why Canada regulatory does not see its need.
