Pilot’s Safety Control

Upholding the conviction that “Aviation is a conscientious business”, every new pilot member has to embrace the Evergreen spirit and receive safety training courses to learn about the responsibilities that each of them has to assume. Each flight crew member must clearly understand the great importance that the Company places on flight safety and the duty towards ensuring safety that they must uphold without fail. In addition to looking out for flight safety during the execution of flight missions, they must also proactively learn to relieve their physiological fatigue and psychological pressures in their daily life to ensure that each flight mission is completed under safe conditions.

Pilot manpower and work shift management

Sufficient pilot manpower is prepared in advance in accordance with EVA Air’s operational plan and with reference to the Company’s seasonal (peak season and off season) operational demands, so that crew members may reasonably arrange their rest days to appro priately regulate the well-being of their body and mind. The Company completed the set-up of the Crew Management System (CMS) in 2013, which ties in with the existing Flight Information System (FIS) and Crew Record Management (CRM) to establish a safer and more efficient workshift schedule that boasts friendly crew member participation (bidding) and real time tracking.


Fatigue management

EVA Air was the fi rst in Taiwan’s aviation industry to bring in the Fatigue & Risk Management System (FRMS). The Company provides a scientific and quantitative crew duty-period sobriety reference value based on the the sobriety module of crew members’ rest and duty times studied and developed by the Boeing Company. Furthermore, in order to continuously elevate the standard of fatigue management, the Company holds monthly FRMS meetings to take stock of the groups whose duty-period sobriety index falls within the bottom 5%, review their method of dispatch with fl eet supervisors and propose feasible improvement schemes, so as to keep enhancing the Company’s overall fatigue management standard.

Stress and health management

EVA Air offers its flight crew a maximum of 42 days of paid annual leave and 30 days of paid annual sick leave; welfare conditions that are far better than those stipulated by the Labor Standards Act. Furthermore, with the friendly CMS/Bidding module, it is now easier for fl ight crew members to arrange their shift schedule and annual leave, relieve their stress and regulate the well-being of their body and mind. The Company also has a medical center set up to offer flight crew members advice on health and stress management at all times.

Alcohol, drugs and activities which can affect fl ight safety

EVA Air has strict stipulations concerning flight crew members’ consumption of alcoholic drinks or drugs and their engagement in activities which can affect flight safety prior to flight missions. For instance, flight crew members are strictly forbidden to ingest any alcoholic drink or engage in scuba diving sport within 12 hours prior to their fl ight. The full-time physician at the Company’s medical office must be consulted before any drugs can be taken.
