For a skill that’s so pivotal to one’s survival as a pilot, it’s ironic that we often leave aeronautical decision-making (ADM) to chance. This course will review the tenets of ADM and explore how it is evolving. Examination of in-depth accident case studies will help participants understand how decision-making occurs in dynamic situations. Participants will also develop the building blocks of threat-and-error management (TEM) skills.

Learning Objectives: By the conclusion of the course, participants will have learned:

  • How to better understand the human decision-making process
  • How to distinguish between analytical and naturalistic decision-making
  • About the benefits of TEM and how to start a process for implementing it
  • How ADM and TEM work together to support successful outcomes
