Fellow Part 135 Aviators:
This survey is for all Part 135 pilots who have, at one time or another, flown under Part 135.
My request to you is for you to take a Part 135 Pilot Fatigue Survey. This survey is being conducted by a trusted friend of mine of 7 years, John Robbins, who is a graduate student at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He is conducting this survey for his graduate research project. There is an identical paper survey concurrently in circulation, however, the Internet allows many more Part 135 pilots to easily take this survey.
The survey will take about 2-5 minutes. The survey is ANONYMOUS, however, it is recommended that you use a public computer, such as one found in a FBO pilot lounge, hotel lobby or library for complete anonymity.
Background info on how your survey responses will be handled:
Your responses are NOT stored on my server. I CANNOT see your responses. Your responses are immediately emailed to John Robbins by my server, with no record of your responses remaining on my server. While my server does keep a record of the IP address of the computer that submitted on the survey, the IP information is NOT and will NOT be passed to John Robbins. This is the reason for my recommendation to use a FBO pilot lounge computer, or any public use computer (absolute anonymity). Make sure to close the browser window after the survey is completed so that nobody may use the “back” button to view your responses.

If you would like to take this survey at another time, it is easiest to remember the “mahoney.aero” website. There is a link to this survey on the main page of mahoney.aero. Just punch mahoney.aero into a browser address bar and click on the survey link at the top of the page.
I encourage everyone to forward this link onto as many Part 135 pilot friends as you know!
The survey opening date is October 16, 2008. The survey length will be determined by the amount of surveys received, or late November, whichever occurs first.
The results of this survey will be available at the same survey link (mahoney.aero/survey.htm). Bookmark it and revisit the survey link after December 1, 2008 for the results.
Thank you. Your participation is very much appreciated.
