EASA OPS rules for Flight Time Limitations (FTL) are valid since 18.02.2016.
EASA FTL Calc helps you to calculate
- cockpit and cabin limits
- actual and maximum flight duty periods (FDP)
- latest on-block times
- duty periods (DP)
- actual and minimum rest times
- state of acclimatization
- commanders discretion
- disruptive schedules
- required local nights at your home base
- extended recovery rest periods
- cumulative duties for 7/14/28 days
- standby and airport standby
- extension of cabin FDP due to earlier reporting time
- delayed reporting
- in-flight rest for cockpit and cabin (different rules)
- split duty
- time zone differences
- company minimum rest times
- your home base
- "back to back" operation
You don't have to know time zones
- simply select an airport from the database
- time zone is determined by airport and date
- select only reporting airport of first duty day
- and the resting airport per duty day
- next reporting airport will be your last resting airport
- your home base will be known (preferences)
Cabin and cockpit limits
- may have different reporting times
- in-flight rest is different
- are calculated independently
- are stored automatically
- are shown in an own table
- with FDPs and rest times overview
- for cockpit and cabin
- on iPad in a split view
- Rosters of BA only
Roster Buster Import
- direct import
- calendar import
Direct App Import
- MyRoster for crew by Lumabyte
- s-FlightLog 2002
- universal (calendar entries must be events of duty days)
Extended Recovery Rest, Disruptive Schedule and Cumulative Duty Lists
Lists will be displayed in reversed order starting with the most recent date. The "Cumulative Duty" list is shortened to display the last 180 days only.
Import of Flights
In addition to FDP data all sectors will be imported. If imported flights are available, "Flights" will appear in the title line to show all imported sectors of a duty day.
Ratings and Reviews
Worth the price
Ok so... we all know our airline employers will push our FDP to the max when it comes to cutting costs and generating revenue... so it pays to be aware of when to say “No, it’s not safe for me to operate, stand me down”. This app does all those pesky little calculations for you so you have the right information to hand.
It’s not the easiest layout to wrap your head around if you don’t know what you’re looking for, and let’s face it, no airline gives really thorough training on what FTL actually means for their Cabin Crew. But the import function really helps with that...
The best thing about this app is that you can pair it with RosterBuster and everything is imported and done for you. Your planned and actual hours are there in black and white and become highlighted for easy viewing if you go into discretionary/out of hours.
Definitely recommend, particularly for SCCMs who will have the teams welfare to consider as well as their own. 👍🏼
The best, but to be really useful.....!
The best EASA FTL calculator I've come across.
To make it really standout from the others and to be truly useful, it should have a way to parse/import rosters.
Also, it would be useful to calculate/display "off duty" and not contactable between .... Earliest report ... (Start of standby + report time), and rules we can input for standby call out (no stby overnights reminder)
As these are the most frequently misunderstood "rules".
I know these matters cross into CBA/CLA areas, but the option to put in user defined "notes" would be helpful
If, like me, your airline makes it impossible to understand the new EASA FTLs by using legalese then this app is for you!
