Flight Duty Period

Hey guys. I think I am not interpreting the “days off” of the FDP correctly. Could you please clarify me? The local civil aviation states:
10. Days off

Flight crew members must –
(1) not work more than seven consecutive days between days off; and
(2) have two consecutive days off in any consecutive fourteen days; and
(3) have a minimum of six days off in any consecutive four weeks at the aerodrome from which they normally operate; and
(4) have an average of at least eight days off in each consecutive four week period, averaged over three such periods.

But, how can you work fourteen consecutive days and have two days off, if you are not allowed to work more than seven consecutive days between days off? I’m confused. Cheers.

It's not consecutive work days it's just consecutive days.

For example 6 on, 2 off, 6 on is acceptable. 14 days total, two consecutive days off in 14.

And is there any restriction on the number of sectors you can do on one day? Because I always see 8 or more sectors, regarding Flight duty period. Cheers

Why not publish your national FDP so we can answer? Which rules are you looking at in Mozambique?

I'm looking for single crew.

Can't find any maximum number of sectors on the FDPs.

Thanks.
