More on sleep here.
My dad is a pilot, and this fact has always been such serious irony whne it comes to his job. Because the sleep deprivation is terrible in his job. They would straight up fire him if they even THOUGHT he was drunk while flying but wow they’re totally fine with making him fly like 4 trips with barely any time to sleep in between.
Seriously. They are only reqired to give him 8 hours exactly, and that includes time to get to hotels and time to get up get ready and get to work, so he usually only gets about 5 tops. And then he has to go fly a 16 hour flight. and then repeat the whole thing for days
