“The CAA is far more enlightened in this area and accepts the practice of knapping is an aid to flight safety. “

Oh, so that’s it. Are you saying that CAA would be patting this captain’s back for “resting” on the 55 min flight had it happen in Europe?

“However the FAA needs to get up to date ASAP!”
Do not count on it. Mostly because of public perception. On longer flights sleep breaks are allowed, but only when the aux pilots are flying along.

What argument of mine (that you follow) don’t you agree with?


“Cameras on the flightdeck” sounds like a great topic for another thread. Start it and I’ll join you there.
(Btw, I did see the dc10 in ord come down. Was there at the time).

Maybe I did not make myself clear or some are too wound up to comprehend what is being said.
What part of cfr states it is acceptable for overworked, fatigued pilots to take a quickie snooze while at the controls?
