EC May Have to Redraft Flight Time Rules

The European Parliament Transport Committee voted to reject the European Commission's draft rule changes regarding on-duty time limits for pilots and crew. The rules are designed to enhance safety by prohibiting work schedules that lead to dangerous levels of pilot fatigue. The Committee appears to have opposed the draft changes because it felt they weren't strong enough. The proposal will be voted on by the full Parliament later this month. If rejected again, the Commission will have to rewrite the proposed changes or leave the current standards in place.
