THE SCHEDULE
Provisions to be inserted in the Colonial Air Navigation Order,
1955, at the end of Part III thereof

PART IIIA
Prevention of Excessive Fatigue of Operating Crew
34A.-(1) The following provisions of this Article shall
have effect for the interpretation of this Part of this Order.
(2) The following expressions shall, except where the con-
text otherwise requires, have the meanings hereby respectively
assigned to them, that is to say,-
(a) "public transport aircraft" means a public transport
aircraft registered in the Colony not being an aircraft
which is a public transport aircraft by reason only of the
fact that persons are carried therein for the purpose of
instruction in flying for which payment is made;
(b) "flight time", in relation to any person, means all time
spent by that person in an aircraft while it is in flight and
he is carried therein as a pilot, flight engineer, flight navi-
gator or flight radio operator thereof ;
(c) "duty -period", in relation to any person who flies in
an aircraft as a pilot, flight engineer, flight navigator or
flight radio operator thereof, means any continuous period
throughout which he is, under the provisions of para-
graphs (4) or (5) of this Article, to be treated as being
on duty;
Provided that where two or more periods which would,
but for this proviso, be separate duty periods are separ-
ated by an interval of less than 10 hours, the period start-
ing when the first of those duty periods began and finish-
ing when the last of them ended shall be treated as
constituting a single continuous duty period.
(d) "rest period", in relation to any person, means any
continuous period no part of which forms part of a duty
period of that person.
(3) An aircraft shall b, deemed to be in flight from the
moment when, after the embarkation of its crew for the purposes
of taking off, it first moves under its own power, until the mo-
ment when it next comes to rest after landing, and the expres-


Interpretation of
Part IIIA.









sions 'flight", "flies", "flying'" and "flown" shall be construed
accordingly.
(4) A person who is employed under a contract of service
to fly in an aircraft as a pilot, flight engineer, flight navigator
or flight radio operator thereof shall be treated as being on duty
at any time when in the course of that employment he flies in
any aircraft (whether as a member of its crew or as a passenger)
or he is otherwise acting in the course of that employment:
Provided that when he is not flying in an aircraft,-
(a) subject to paragraph (c) of this proviso, he shall not
be treated as being on duty during any period which he
is allowed for rest;
(b) subject to paragraph (c) of this proviso, he shall not be
treated as being on duty at any time by reason only of
his being required at that time to be available at a parti-
cular place to report for duty if required to do so;
(c) he shall be treated as being on duty at any time when
he is required to be available at a particular place to
report for duty if required to do so if-
(i) that place is at an aerodrome, or
(ii) that place, not being at an aerodrome, is a place
at which I is employer requires persons similarly
employed to be available as aforesaid and adequate
facilities for rest are not available for his use while he
is required to be so available.
(5) A person who flies in an aircraft as a pilot, flight
engineer, flight navigator or flight radio operator thereof, other-
wise than in the course of his employment under a contract of
service to fly as aforesaid, shall be treated as being on duty at
any time when, in connection with any business of operating
aircraft, he flies in any aircraft (whether as a member of its
crew or as a passenger) or does any work.
(6) References to a person flying in an aircraft as a pilot,
flight engineer, flight navigator or flight radio operator thereof
include references to the operator of the aircraft in a case where
that operator is an individual who flies in the aircraft in any
of those capacities and references to the work and other duties
which a person is required by an operator to carry out shall in
any such case be construed as references to any work carried out
by that operator in connection with the operation of aircraft or
with any business of operating aircraft.

34B.-(1) It shall be the duty of every operator of a public
Duties of transport aircraft to ensure, as respects each person flying as a,
operators of
public transport pilot, flight engineer, flight navigator or flight radio operator
aircraft to of a public transport aircraft operated by that operator, that
prevent excessive the periods during which that person is required by that operator

operating crew.









and frequency, and that that person is afforded such periods for
rest, that his said work and duties are not likely to cause him
such fatigue while he is flying in a public transport aircraft as
may endanger the safety of that aircraft.
(2) Without prejudice to the provisions of paragraph (1)
of this Article, and for the purposes of securing that the require-
ments of those provisions are complied with, every operator of
a public transport aircraft shall establish for all persons flying
in that aircraft as a pilot, flight engineer, flight navigator or
flight radio operator thereof,-
(a) limits on their flight times during every period of 30
consecutive days,
(b) limits on their duty flying periods, and
(c) minimum rest periods which such persons are to have
immediately before any duty period in the course of which
they make any such flight as aforesaid,
being limits and minimum rest periods which the operator is
satisfied, after taking into account the matters mentioned in
paragraph (3) of this Article, are such that, if those persons
observe those limits and have those minimum rest periods, the
safety of the aircraft on any flight is not likely to be endangered
by reason of any fatigue which those persons may be caused by
the work and other duties which they are required by that
operator to carry out. The said limits and minimum rest periods
may be established either for any particular person mentioned
in this paragraph or for any class of such persons and so as to
apply either in any particular case or in any class of case.
(3) The matters which an operator shall take into account
in establishing under paragraph (2). of this Article limits and
minimum rest periods as therein mentioned for the persons
therein mentioned are the nature of the work and other duties
which those persons will have to carry out and all circumstances
arising out of the carrying out of that work and those duties
which may affect the degree of fatigue from which those persons
may suffer while they are making a flight in a public transport
aircraft in any such capacity as is mentioned in the said para-
graph (2).
(4) No limits or minimum rest periods may be established
under paragraph (2) of this Article which would require or
permit any person to fly in any aircraft at a time when such
flying would constitute a contravention of any of the provisions
of Articles; 34D, 34E or 34F.
(5) An operator of a public transport aircraft shall not per-
mit that aircraft to make a flight unless limits and minimum rest
periods have been established in accordance with the foregoing
provisions of this Article so as to apply to every person flying
in that aircraft on that flight as a pilot, flight engineer, flight
navigator or flight radio operator thereof.







6

(6) Every operator of a public transport aircraft shall take
all such steps as are reasonably practicable to secure that all
limits for the time being established by that operator in accord-
ance with the foregoing provisions of this Article are observed
and that the persons for whom minimum rest periods are for the
time being so established do not make such flights as are men-
tioned in paragraph (1) of this Article unless they have had the
appropriate rest period so established.
(7) Notwithstanding anything contained in the foregoing
provisions of this Article, an operator of a public transport air-
craft may confer upon any person in command of that aircraft
(hereafter in this paragraph called "the commander") a discre-
tion to make, or authorise any other person to make, a flight in
that aircraft in such circumstances that the commander or, as
the case may be, that other person will not observe the limits or
will not have had the minimum rest periods established by that
operator under the foregoing provisions of this Article and ap-
plicable to the commander or that other person:
Provided that the said discretion shall not be exercisable
unless the following conditions are fulfilled, that is to say,-
(a) that it appears to the commander-
(i) that arrangements had been made for the flight to
be made with such a crew and so as to begin and end
at such times that if the flight had been made in
accordance with those arrangements each member of
the crew would have observed the limits and have had
the minimum rest periods established by the operator
and applicable to them as aforesaid, and that since
those arrangements were made the flight has been or
will be prevented from being made in accordance with
those arrangements by reason of exceptional circum-
stances or by reason of circumstances which were not
foreseen as likely to prevent that flight from being
so made, or
(ii) that the flight is one which ought to be carried out
in the interests of the safety or health of any person,
and
(b) that the commander is satisfied that the safety of the
aircraft on that flight will not be endangered if he or that
other person makes that flight.
(8) Every operator of a public transport aircraft shall in-
clude in every Operations Manual to be provided under Article
18 for the use and guidance of the members of the operating
crew of any public transport aircraft operated by that operator,
or, in any case where no such Manual is required to be provided
by that Article, in a document which shall be provided for the
use and guidance of those members, full particulars of all limits
and minimum rest periods for the time being established under









the foregoing provisions of this Article which may affect any of
those members, and of any discretion conferred upon the com-
mander of that aircraft under paragraph (7) of this Article and
(without prejudice to the provisions of paragraph (6) of Article
18) every such operator shall, whenever requested to do so by a
person authorised in that behalf by the Governor, furnish that
person with a copy of all particulars from time to time included
in any such Operations Manual or document in accordance with
the requirements of this paragraph.
(9) In this article-
(a) the expression "flying duty period", in relation to any
person, means the time, reckoned from-the beginning of
each duty period of that person, in the course of which
he is permitted to make any such flight as is mentioned
in paragraph (1) of this Article and after the expiration
of which he is not, in the course of the same duty period,
to make any such flight;
(b) references to the work or other duties which a person
is required by an operator to carry out include references
to any work or other duties which that person is permitted
by that operator to carry out in connection with the oper-
ation of any aircraft operated by that operator or with
any business of operating aircraft carried on by that
operator.
34c.-(1) Every operator of a public transport aircraft
registered in the Colony shall-
(a) keep or cause to be kept an accurate and up to date
record showing, in relation to each person who has
flown as a pilot, flight engineer, flight navigator or flight
radio operator of any public transport aircraft operated
by that operator-
(i) the times of the beginning and end of each flight in
any aircraft made by that person in the course of any
of his duty periods, and
(ii) the times of the beginning and end of each duty
period of that person, and
(iii) brief particulars of the nature of the work or
other duties carried out by that person during each
of his duty periods;
(b) retain the records kept under subparagraph (a) of this
paragraph for a period of at least 12 months after the
end of the flight, duty period or rest period to which they
relate; and
(c) whenever called upon to do so by any person authorised
in that behalf by the Governor produce for the inspection
of any person so authorised all records kept under sub-
paragraph (a) of this paragraph and furnish to any per-
son so authorised all such information as he may require
in connection with any such records and produce for his

to see for the purposes of determining whether they are
complete or of verifying the accuracy of their contents.
(2) The Governor may prescribe the form and manner in
which any records required to be kept under subparagraph (a)
of the last foregoing paragraph shall be kept and where he has
so prescribed the said records shall be kept accordingly.

34D.-(1) Without prejudice to the provisions of Article
34B, a person shall not fly in a public transport aircraft as a
pilot, flight engineer, flight navigator or flight radio operator
thereof at any time on any day after the aggregate of all his
flight times (whether arising from flights in a public transport
aircraft or in any other aircraft) during the period of 30 con-
secutive days expiring at the end of that day amounts to 125
hours.
(2) An operator of public transport aircraft shall not cause
or permit any person to make any flight which that person is
prohibited from making by paragraph (1) of this Article.

34E.-(1) Without prejudice to the provisions of Article
34B, a person shall not fly in a public transport aircraft as a pilot

(2) An operator of public transport aircraft shall not cause
or permit any person to make any flight which that person is
prohibited from making by paragraph (1) of this Article.
(3) In paragraph (1) of this Article the expression "the
specified time" means,-
(a) in relation to a person who flies in an aircraft as the
only pilot thereof, 12 hours:
Provided that if before the commencement of that flight
and during the duty period in the course of which he
makes that flight, there has been a period of not less than
seven continuous hours throughout which that person has
not flown in any aircraft, the foregoing provisions of this
subparagraph shall have effect in relation to that flight
as if 14 hours were substituted therein for 12 hours.
(b) in relation to a person who flies as a pilot of an aircraft
in which two or more persons are carried as pilots thereof,
16 hours:

Article applies as a pilot, flight engineer, flight navigator or
flight radio operator thereof at any time on any day after the
aggregate of all his flight times (whether arising from flights in
an aircraft to which this Article applies or in any other aircraft)
during the period'of 30 consecutive days expiring at the end of
that day amounts to 125 hours:
Provided that this Article shall not apply to a flight made
by a person at any time if at that time the aggregate of all his
flight times since he was, in accordance with the prescribed re-
quirements, last medically examined and found fit, does not
exceed 125 hours.
(2) An operator of .an aircraft to which this Article applies
shall, not cause or permit any person to make any flight Which
that person is prohibited from making by paragraph (1) of this
Article.
(3) Thi.; Article applies to any aircraft registered in the
.Colony which is not n. public transport aircraft.

34n.-(1) Notwithstanding anything contained in Articles
34D to 34u., a person shall be deemed not to have contravened
any of the provisions of those Aiticles by reason of a flight made
at any time by that person or by another person if the first
mentioned person proves-
(a) that it was due to an unavoidable delay in the comple-
tion of the flight that the person so flying was flying at
that time, and









(b) that the said first mentioned person could not reason-
ably be expected to have foreseen before the flight began
that the delay was likely to occur.
(2) Without prejudice to the provisions of paragraph (1)
of this Article and notwithstanding anythifig contained in Arti-
cles 34D, 34E or 34r (hereinafter referred to as "the relevant
Articles"), any person in command of a public transport aircraft
(hereafter in this Article called "the commander") may make, or
authorise any other person to make, and that other person if so
authorised may make, a flight in that aircraft which he would,
but for this paragraph, be prohibited from making by virtue
of any provision contained in the relevant Articles if-

(a) it appears to the commander:-
(i) that arrangements had been made for the flight to
be made with such a crew and so as to begin and end
at such times that no member of that crew would
have been prohibited from making the flight in ac-
cordance with those arrangements by any provision
contained in the relevant Articles, and that since
those arrangements were made the flight has been or
will be prevented from being made in accordance
with those arrangements by reason of exceptional
circumstances or by reason of circumstances which
were not foreseen as likely to prevent that flight from
being so made, or

(ii) that the flight is one which ought to be carried out
in the interests of the safety or health of any person,
and
(b) the commander is satisfied that the safety of the air-
craft on that flight will not be endangered if he or -that
other person makes that flight.
(3) Where the commander or any other person makes a
flight in a public transport aircraft which he or that other
person is permitted to make under the last foregoing paragraph,
a report in writing that he or that other person has made that
flight, giving full particulars of the circumstances in which it
was made and the reasons why the commander made that flight
or, as the case may be, authorised that other person to do so, shall
be made as soon as is reasonably practicable by the commander
to the operator of the aircraft where the commander is not the
operator thereof, and in any event by the operator to the Gov-
ernor, and the operator and the commander shall furnish any
person authorised by the Governor with such further information
relating to the flight and the circumstances in which it was made
as that person may from time to time require.












Provision for 341. Notwithstanding the provisions of Articles 34A to 34H
modification of of this Order, the Governor may by Regulations modify or re-
place the provisions of any or all of those Articles in their
application to the Colony if he considers that the prevention of
excessive fatigue of the operating crew of aircraft registered in
the Colony will thereby be more suitably ensured.


EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This Note is not part of the Order but is intended to indicate
its general purport.)
This Order amends the Colonial Air Navigation Order,
1955, by including in that Order new provisions for preventing
excessive fatigue on the part of the operating crew (i.e., pilots,
flight engineers, flight navigators and flight radio operators) of
aircraft registered in the Colony. These provisions are set out
in considerable detail in Articles 34A to 34H, while Article 34i
enables the Governor to modify or replace any or all of them
should they appear inappropriate for application in respect of
aircraft registered in the Colony.
This Order also amends the Rules of the Air and
Air Traffic Control (Schedule II to the Colonial Air
Navigation Order, 1955). The Order thus permits a glider,
when hill-soaring, to fly closer than 500 feet to any per-
son, vessel, vehicle or structure, and it also substitutes
for the existing Rule of the Air dealing with flight within
the traffic zones of aerodromes a new Rule which substan-
tially re-enacts the present requirements but includes new pro-
visions prohibiting flight within such zones except for specified
purposes such as landing or take off, unless permission of the
appropriate authority has been obtained.
