These queries investigated perceptions of whether the suggested countermeasures significantly contributed to commencing flight duty without manifesting symptoms of a sleep deficit. Comparisons were made within the collected data, and each of the comparisons assumed that sleep was a priority among the crew members. The Pearson calculations were used to investigate whether a perceived relationship existed between the suggested corporate countermeasures and making sleep a priority before commencing duty flights.
