TTF Aerospace, a leading manufacturer of Aircraft Crew Rest Modules, has become the first Crew Rest Manufacturer to achieve in-service compliance with its Bulk Cargo Crew Rest on a major US carrier for FAA Advisory Circular, AC117-1 FDP by the January 4th deadline. The Bulk Cargo Crew Rest (BCCR) houses up to 8 crew members in a fully self-contained module located in the aft cargo compartment of the Airbus A330-200/-300 aircraft.
On January 4, 2014, FAA Advisory Circular, AC117-1, went into effect. This is the first major revision of the flight limitation regulations in 60 years. This new rule is science-based and introduces several new concepts such as Flight Duty Period (FDP), fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS), augmentation limits based on the quality of the on-board crew rest facility and increased rest requirements.
