Flight time limitations (Old 48.1)

HPOUND created the topic: Flight time limitations (Old 48.1)

I am reading paras 1.14 through 1.16 of the Old 48.1, as follows:

1.14 A pilot shall not fly and an operator shall not roster him or her to fly as a flight crew member in excess of 900 hours in 365 consecutive days.
1.15 A pilot shall not fly and an operator shall not roster him or her to fly in excess of 100 hours in 30 consecutive days.
1.16 A pilot shall not fly and an operator shall not roster him or her to fly in excess of 30 hours in 7 consecutive days.


In 1.14, the condition "as a flight crew member" is added. What is the significance of this? What is this condition included for 1.14 but not 1.15 and 1.16?

Does it mean, for example, a pilot who flies as a passenger MEL/SIN/LHR rtn for a vacation would need to count this time under 1.15 and 1.16, but not 1.14? Perhaps deadhead transportation would be picked up by 1.15 and 1.16, but not 1.14?

Thanks.

I think you can safely assume that the phrase "a pilot shall not fly" means that he/she is acting as a flight crew member. I can't imagine that any pilot would be likely to fly 100 hours in 30 days as dead-head transportation! That would be a very strange company to work for..

I would agree with that interpretation.

Mind you, the 100 hours in 30 days need not be 100 hours of deadhead. It could be, for example, a limitation that kicks in with 95 hours as a flight crew member and 5 as deadhead!

Why do you think the wording is different? Legislation is normally drafted and checked very carefully, so it's hard to believe this is an inadvertent variation in wording.
