Non-functional SMS,some accidents are just inevitable

All systems are composed of three basic elements: people; processes; and technology. While managing safety, all three elements have to work cohesively in order to produce the desired results. The cost of workplace injuries is staggering: employers pay as much as $1 billion per week in direct and indirect workers’ compensations costs. Indirect costs include training replacement employees, accident investigation, lost productivity, etc., and can be 20 times higher than direct medical and wage replacement costs. The industries with the largest percentage of workers’ compensation claims include: air travel (7.3 percent get injured on the job), beverage and tobacco manufacturing (6.9…

U.S. Army Shakes Up Pilot Training Programs: mindFly

The new generation of pilots is facing the dilemma of handling increasing levels of automation. They are not being able to retain the skills of flying to deal with automation failures. The Multi Pilot License program drastically reduced real-time flying and replaced it with flight simulator flying. But it’s not the solution. It is a concept which focuses on the multi-crew concept more than the holistic development of a pilots personality. The U.S. Army is downgrading technology in its new Eurocopter UH-72 Lakota fleet. This is so that student pilots can master basic flying skills. Even though the modern helicopter…

Genetic based learning for flight crew: mindFly

Taking an evidence-based approach to teaching and learning, as encouraged by the field of educational neuroscience, is challenging and at times controversial. Perhaps the most contentious aspect of this endeavor is the application of genetics to education and flight crew training.
