ABSTRACT
Findings of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), stemming from the 2002 crash of FedEx Flight 1478 are stirring the pot of critical reaction in the airline pilot community. The group has no argument with the board's only recommendations, both of which focus on a pilot's color vision deficiencies. However, the 64,000-member-strong Air Line Pilots Association says the NTSB recognized the significant role of fatigue and its hazards in the accident — and should have either issued new recommendations on rest rules or reiterated previous fatigue-related proposals.
