Cool

Has anyone found a summary yet? I'm not motivated enough to read the 300+ page document.

From what I can gather it looks like 10 hours of rest and it doesn't become effective until december 2013.

Under the new rules:
•Flight-duty times would range from nine to 14 hours. For the first time, rather than just counting flight time and rest time, flight-duty time would count the time spent flying to the job, which is sometimes called dead-heading, as if the pilot were working.
•Flight-time limits will be eight or nine hours, depending on the start time of the pilot's entire flight duty.
•Minimum rest periods will be 10 hours between shifts. The pilot must have an opportunity for eight hours of uninterrupted sleep during that rest period.
•There will be cumultative rest times. Pilots must have 30 consecutive hours of rest each week, which is a 25% increase over current standards.

Airline pilots to fly shorter shifts, get rest - USATODAY.com
