This course presents powerful ideas useful to veteran glass-cockpit pilots as well as those new to modern helicopter autoflight systems. Designed to enhance advanced cockpit human–machine interface skills, the program teaches pilots the nine principles of glass-cockpit airmanship, derived from over a decade of fieldwork with organizations that have successfully transitioned to advanced aircraft fleets. Each principle provides a building block for a straightforward and disciplined approach to operate increasingly complex aircraft safely and effectively in demanding operational environments.

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

  • How to optimize their use of automation
  • Techniques for providing clear, focused briefings and responding appropriately to automation alerts and warnings
  • How to apply automation-related strategies to all phases of flight, including task and workload management, mode control, improved situational awareness, and more.
