According to the bill's sponsors, the Airline Flight Crew Technical Corrections Act (AFCTC) (S. 1422) is designed to address the unique concerns of flight crew workers who, because of the way their duty hours are calculated, may not meet the FMLA's eligibility requirement of working 1,250 hours a year.
