Good Question: How Can A Pilot Get Lost?

Every day, almost 30,000 planes take off and land in the United States without a hitch. But a new report released by the Associated Press found at least 150 flights have landed or almost landed at the wrong airport since the mid-90s. These flights include a cargo 747 that landed at a small Kansas airport last fall, eight miles from its intended target.

FAA Enacts New Rules To Fight Pilot Fatigue

New rules take effect Saturday to limit pilot hours in the cockpit, and to make sure they’re getting enough rest between flights. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) now requires that all commercial pilots receive 30 uninterrupted, off-duty hours per week – a 25-percent increase from previous regulations. Before they go on duty, pilots must now get 10-hour rest periods, including eight hours of uninterrupted sleep. And depending on when their flight begins, the rules limit a pilot’s time in the cockpit to eight or nine hours.
