serf, I don't believe the aim is to be permanently IFR (the camera's aren't that good). It just enhances the options at the start of a mission. The skill set (should enough IMC experience be obtained/maintained) should enhance the safety of the operation.

F&D Regs

What are the regs regarding flight & duty under EASA?
I heard a while back that they were thinking of doing away with the 7/7, wanting to make it 5/5...

I think there is no such regulation in EASA in HEMS ops.... Each country has got it's own regulation...

Jayteeto are you being cynical about your shift pattern not being fatiguing?

The 2D/2N/4off worked for me. I was based at a busy merseyside police unit and did this shift for nearly seven years. I never had a problem with fatigue. In fact we are hoping our current hems unit will switch to a similar roster as our previous mentioned is more fatiguing.

whilst I agree with Jayteeto for the most part, one unfortunate issue is the wildly different attitudes and accommodation for the night shifts. But in the main I think it's a mega set up for the job we do.
