Abstract : Two groups of Military Airlift Command aircrewmen reported on their activities in half-hour blocks around the clock--one group for 15 consecutive days, the other for 20 consecutive days--to provide data on the typical transport flyer's workload. Mean times on approximately 50 different activities are presented. Crew availability, level of job-satisfaction, and fatigue are analyzed. It was concluded that: crew availability is nearly 100% and does not limit airframe utilization; certain factors are sources of continuing frustration to aircrewmen; persistent complaints of fatigue appear to arise from frustration rather than overwork; any improvements resulting in a decrease in aircrew frustration should improve aircrew morale and level of job-satisfaction; changes designed to increase airframe utilization rates may increase the level of aircrew frustration; and consideration should be given to training as aircrewmen only those individuals free from excessive sensitivity to frustrating conditions.
