This contribution presents the first version of the FCC-hh operation schedule and updates estimates on collider turn around cycle. The operational schedule shows planned time for physics operations and maintenance during collider life cycle. The schedule meets requirements for time reserved for physics production. However, this considerably limits the time reserved for maintenance and this restraint needs to be taken into account in collider system design. The turn-around cycle time of a collider is defined as the time spent between the end of stable beams and the start of the next stable beams. This time is a crucial ingredient for the computation of the optimal time spent in luminosity production and for the estimates of the collider operational performance. The first estimation of the turn-around time was presented at the FCC week 2016. This contribution updates the estimate based on advances in the FCC-hh study and LHC operation data from 2016.
