As part of our continuing support of the WFP Aviation Safety Unit’s work in promoting and enhancing safety amongst the African community of humanitarian air operators, Gates Aviation’s Jo Gillespie (pictured 2nd row centre) ran a workshop on Fatigue Risk Management during the latest safety campaign in Nairobi. Humanitarian flights operate in very difficult conditions within a challenging air and ground environment, and fatigue is a daily issue for pilots, maintenance and support staff. The fatigue management systems proposed for conventional air operators are probably not appropriate for these specialists and an alternative approach is required. Gates Aviation’s workshop is based upon ICAO’s recently published document ‘Fatigue Management Guide for General Aviation Operators of Large and Turbojet Aeroplanes’ – a lengthy but self-explanatory title. The workshop explores the content of this guidance and helps participants understand the value of implementing basic fatigue measurement and management strategies.
