Beyond Root Cause (Oct 2023)

For instructors & examiners

Sorry: We are no longer taking reservations for this course

This course is prioritised for examiners, instructors, and flight operations inspectors of helicopters or mutli-crew fixed-wing aircraft. It uses new science-based knowledge to look deeper than ever before into modern pilot performance, helping to identify new threats and develop mitigations in training.

The course discusses critical new themes emerging from recent scientific industry research, with compelling, relevant, and surprising examples. Themes include subtle effects of modern automation, unnoticed pilot monitoring vulnerabilities, and consistent threats in abnormal event management. The course also discusses the place of competencies in identifying and prompting diagnosis.

Please note: The course is intended for instructors and examiners (and related professionals), and course places are prioritised accordingly. We apologise that we are not accepting bookings from other areas such as research, human factors, CRM training, academia and consultancy. For courses or assistance in these areas, please email us.
