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 flyers 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.
