DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AJ58 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: +Flight and Duty Time Limitations and Rest Requirements 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend existing flight, duty, and rest regulations applicable to certificate holders and their flightcrew members operating under 14 CFR part 121. The new requirements would eliminate the current distinctions between domestic, flag, and supplemental operations. Also, the rulemaking would provide different requirements based on the time of day, whether an individual is acclimated to a new time zone, and the likelihood of being able to sleep under different circumstances. This rulemaking is necessary to improve aviation safety by providing applicable persons with the opportunity for sufficient rest. The FAA will issue an initial supplemental regulatory evaluation.
