Mitsubishi Jets to come with Anti Sleep Alarms

Those Japs have thought of everything. What will this mean for pilots? No doubt they will have to increase the pilot rest. Discuss.

Well looks like majors and regional pilots are susceptible to sleeping, this will only combat that. Pretty soon fearful pax will only fly on Mitsubishi jets. Brilliant marketing by those Japanese.

Define "anti-sleep" alarm? Does a robotic arm backhand you or does the automated "betty" ask you to wake up....loudly?

That would be the first circuit breaker pulled once entering the flight deck.........

And no- not because of one's desire for sleep in the airplane, but I've got more important things to worry about on an approach or enroute to do rather than cancel an alarm every few minutes.

Fine with me... now I can take a 15 minute nap with no worries about the other guy falling asleep!

Boeing has an option for this on the 757/767, 777, and I believe the 747-400. After a predetermined amount of time without any inputs to the flight guidance controller or radios a "Crew Response" EICAS message appears. If it is not canceled after a couple of minutes an audible alarm goes off. I've seen this on a UAL 757 jumpseat.

I know the railroads have this...they have to push a button every so often to make sure they are awake or the train reduces power....that would work or they could just make this dam job less fatiguing.

You probably didn't intend it to be, but the term you used to apply to Japanese is generally seen as offensive to them.. Since you can't edit your post, a clarification of your intent will suffice.

Maybe they know their launch customer is TSA and they are planning for everything?

Oh wait what am I thinking! I bet old uncle hooley has them removed to save money. My guess is they will come with 1 FMS, no AP, and wicker chairs for seats.

This option is not new and has been available on Boeing models since the 80's, the 727 I think even had a mod post production. Although ours never had it I want to say some of Uniteds or TWAs did, but now I'm burning useless braincells so I'll quit.

The MU2 has this built into the autopilot. It uses strong G forces at random times to make sure you are awake and your finger is near the 'red button.'

"Jap's" is a derogatory term. I know you don't mean it in a racist way, but just saying.

Mesa won't be around when this plane comes out so why the anti-sleep alarm? Unless mainline plans on flying them.

Everything about CX is offensive, being a Hulas felcher and not bathing are just a few of his finer qualities, along with being a racist.

Sorry about that, Japanese. Not Japs, Japs is used as a derogatory term to conjure up images of WW2. I should have known considering I saw that Michael Man film. No doubt this Mitsubishi jet will be very nice, I hope it will have the extras that Japanese machinery is famous for like the talking toilet.
