The Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) database contains over 300 narrative reports by flight crews reporting fatigue as the cause of operational errors. Errors include altitude and module deviations, fuel miscalculations, landing without a clearance, and landing on the incorrect runway or at the wrong airport. Fatigue has also been cited by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) as a causal factor in many accidents. This module is designed to raise awareness on the causes of fatigue and countermeasures to reduce or mitigate the effects of fatigue in aviation.
The Fatigue Management module can be used for one hour of credit towards IA Renewal. FAA Course Acceptance Number: C-IND-IM-160330-K-006-001.
