About Fatigue Manager App
With todays busy flight schedules and often cramped duty rosters in scheduled and non-scheduled flight operations it is essential to keep the fatigue level of your most valued work force at an acceptable level. Pilots (and also Cabin Crew members) frequently suffer from sleep depreviation, jet lag and climate changes. If not properly managed, fatigue will become a factor. Fatigue Risk Management (FRM) is mandated and this simple app will help large and small operators to implement it.
The idea for the app came when one of the founders, an experienced airline pilot and safety expert, was tasked with the implementation of a fatigue management system in a major European carrier. We understand that people who run across our software will have different perceptions of what the software should do and how it should have been designed. We strive for a simple, easy to use solution which serves the purpose of smaller and larger operators. One of the very early lessons learned was that a fatigued crew member does not want to spend endless minutes in front of his desktop computer to enter a fatigue report.
Effective tracking of fatigue levels are enabled using fatigue reports.
Fatigue levels are recorded based on certain measurable objectives.
The fatigue data can be analysed and stored in your safe server.
PVT lets us analyse the fatigue levels of the person in operation.
Enables tracking and record-keeping of timezones travelled.
Considers emotional factor into account.
Why Fatigue Manager app?
Managing fatigue properly in the airline industry is key to flight safety. Modern air transport is a 24/7 industry with many of the staff (pilots, flight attendants, maintenance staff, dispatch officers, flight control officers) in an entirely irregular shift schedule.2. Do you have fatigue reporting in place?
Ask yourself the question: “Do you have fatigue reporting in place and if yes, how useful is it to you and your management? Do you get the information which you seek? Based on that information are you able to control and mitigate risk caused by fatigue? If the answers are NO to these questions, you might want to take a closer look. Fatigue Manager App can help you improve reporting and data analysis.3. Do you have regular fatigue surveys in place?
One important element of any fatigue management system is a regular fatigue survey. These are typically company-wide and are carried out once every three years or so or when changes in your organizational structure deem it necessary. Fatigue Surveys show long-term changes in how fatigue is perceived as a threat by your staff. Please contact us if you are interested in how to set up such a survey.4. Do you have objective fatigue measurement in place?
What about objective fatigue measurement in your FRMS? Do you have objective fatigue measurement in place? If the answer to this question is NO, please read on. The Fatigue Manager App incorporates a PVT- Module.5. What is PVT?
PVT stands for Pilot Vigilance Testing. It is a way to objectively measure pilot vigilance. The App includes a module which allows you to do just that. The test only takes 2 minutes so it can be done in a quiet phase of flight, e.g. cruise flight without interfering too much with daily work routines.

Options 1: The data submitted by the App goes straight to your airline’s server
Options 2: The data submitted by the App stays in our server. Each option has pro’s & con’s
Pricing will depend on the level of customisation you require for the app to make it most useful for your business.
We can do the analysis for you and send monthly or quarterly reports. Keeping the data with us has the advantage that your data will be de-identified and you will not have to worry about sharing your sensitive information with investigation bodies in case of incidents or accidents.
If you wish to do your own analysis then the App can be adjusted so that the data of your users is stored on your server only. You are then free to run your own analysis and use your data to your likes.
Objective Fatigue Measurement
We offer two technologies to complement the app´s data:
We recommend that measurements are carried out once every day in the morning (at home / hotel). Since the system takes a full EKG we also recommend that each crew member owns his personal equipment.This tool is mainly used to self-assess and detect long-term fatigue.
Feel free to fill up the contact form and we will get back to you!
Pricing will depend on the level of customisation you require for the app to make it most useful for your business. Customisation can range from simply adding your company logo, to adjusting the app so that the data will be automatically submitted to your server, to full service such as regular fatigue data analysis (the advantage of which is that you do not have the raw data on your server and therefore cannot be forced to disclose it in case of an accident or incident).
Please give us the estimated number of app users and a short note on who you are / your flight operations and we will get back to you with more details.
