UPS pilots file lawsuit demanding same amount of rest time as commercial pilots

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- UPS pilots are fighting to get the same amount of rest time between flights as commercial pilots.

The Independent Pilots Association made arguments in its lawsuit challenging an FAA decision in the U.S. Court of Appeals today.

The FAA excluded all cargo pilots from a regulation creating stricter rules for the amount of rest between flights. The IPA wants the court to order the FAA to include cargo operations in the regulation.

Pilot fatigue was listed as a contributing factor in a UPS plane crash in Alabama in 2013.
