Study shows pilots get less sleep than other workers

A new poll by the National Sleep Foundation has shown that our trusted airline pilots get less sleep than your average worker in America.  About one-fourth of pilots, or 23%, admitted that sleepiness has affected their job performance at least once a week, the poll found.

What's also scary is that 1 out of 5 pilots have admitted "serious errors" while working on the job.

Most of it is related to the busy schedule demanded onto them by airlines.  While most (58%) pilots take cat naps during the days that they work it'd also be nice if they could have more regulated sleep schedules.
