Fact Sheet – Pilot Flight Time, Rest, and Fatigue

The regulations for this are in 14 CFR 121 Subpart R—FLIGHT TIME LIMITATIONS: FLAG OPERATIONS.

In short, flight time limits within a rolling 24 hour period depend on the number of crew members assigned to the flight:

  • One or two pilot crews – 8 hours max
  • Two pilots and one additional flight crewmember: 12 hours max
  • Three or more pilots and an additional flight crewmember: More than 12 hours, but “adequate sleeping quarters on the airplane” will be provided
