The new regulations would reduce pilots' working day from up to a 14 hour shift to a period of nine to 13 hours, depending on the time they start and number of flights they make while on duty, Dan Adamus, president of ALPA's Canadian board said in an interview. Small Canadian carriers would have four years to apply the regulations after they are finalized in 2017, while large operators would have a year to comply.
