Mental workload can get enhanced during flight operations according to the conditions present for adhering to Instrument Flight Rule (IFR). This is because there will always be requirement for finding out the suitable weather conditions for adhering to IFR. Moreover, there will also be requirement of checking several elements like automated parts, human-controlled parts, etc. Multi-tasking to an extremely enhanced level will have to be practiced. Otherwise, there can be difficulties controlling the aircraft in emergency/difficult situations in air or on ground. The situation of fatigue combined with IFR adherence in flight operations will be a challenging situation for pilots to control the aircraft.
