Quantifying Fatigue Risk as Part of the Flight Risk Assessment

Wednesday 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Presented by:
Joe Gallagher, Director-Health, Safety, Environmental & Quality
Daniel Mollicone, PhD, CEO & Chief Scientistic, Pulsar Informatics

Pre-flight risk assessment is essential to ensure safety of crewmembers and passengers. A key element of the risk assessment is pilot fatigue. When we are fatigued, we are impaired. But how much fatigue is too much? This presentation will demonstrate tools and approaches to assess fatigue risk using a quantitative objective framework with clear thresholds to trigger fatigue mitigation workflows. Results from a fatigue risk management implementation in a large air medical transport operation will be presented.
