EASA OPS rules for Flight Time Limitations (FTL) are valid since 18.02.2016.
EASA FTL Calc helps you to calculate
- cockpit and cabin limits
- actual and maximum flight duty periods (FDP)
- latest on-block times
- duty periods (DP)
- actual and minimum rest times
- state of acclimatization
- commanders discretion
- disruptive schedules
- required local nights at your home base
- extended recovery rest periods
- cumulative duties for 7/14/28 days
- standby and airport standby
- extension of cabin FDP due to earlier reporting time
- delayed reporting
- in-flight rest for cockpit and cabin (different rules)
- split duty
- time zone differences
- company minimum rest times
- your home base
- "back to back" operation
You don't have to know time zones
- simply select an airport from the database
- time zone is determined by airport and date
- select only reporting airport of first duty day
- and the resting airport per duty day
- next reporting airport will be your last resting airport
- your home base will be known (preferences)
Cabin and cockpit limits
- may have different reporting times
- in-flight rest is different
- are calculated independently
- are stored automatically
- are shown in an own table
- with FDPs and rest times overview
- for cockpit and cabin
- on iPad in a split view
- Rosters of BA only

Ratings and Reviews
If, like me, your airline makes it impossible to understand the new EASA FTLs by using legalese then this app is for you!
The best, but to be really useful.....!
The best EASA FTL calculator I've come across.
To make it really standout from the others and to be truly useful, it should have a way to parse/import rosters.
Also, it would be useful to calculate/display "off duty" and not contactable between .... Earliest report ... (Start of standby + report time), and rules we can input for standby call out (no stby overnights reminder)
As these are the most frequently misunderstood "rules".
I know these matters cross into CBA/CLA areas, but the option to put in user defined "notes" would be helpful
Excellent and so easy to use.
How anyone understands the new EASA FTL without an app like this is beyond me. I tried the ECA free app and found it clunky and not very intuitive. However, this app is a delight to use and answers your questions before you realise you need to ask them!
Information screens are available which display the relevant rule at the appropriate place.
Highly recommended and well worth the small cost
