The Federal Register this week published corrections to the final rule on flight-crew rest and duty times. Clarifications include that flight-crew members may not accept a trip that forces them to exceed 100 flight hours in any 672-consecutive-hour period, nor more than 1,000 hours in a given 365-day period.

Prior to any duty period, a pilot must also receive at least 30 hours of consecutive free time in any 168-consecutive-hour period.

The new rule takes effect on January 4, 2014. Read the updated document.
