French term or phrase: en rotation
I'm translating a report about a co-pilot. The report says that the co-pilot travelled "en rotation" from Jamaica to Germany. What does "en rotation" mean? Does it just translate to "in rotation"?

The report also says the pilot got heavily drunk in Jamaica. So if he was co-pilot on the flight from Jamaica to Germany, I'm wondering how he lis able to fly a plane with a hangover. Maybe he just travelled on the plane as a passenger?

Here's the context:
Monsieur aborde bien ouvertement la situation survenue lors d’un voyage où il était commandant en second à Montego Bay. Après le vol, monsieur est resté jusqu’au surlendemain, moment où ils sont en rotation vers Allemagne.
