Evidence-Based Training for Helicopter Pilots

Rotor Safety Challenge (RSC)
Career Development, Operations, Pilot
Instructor: Scott Boughton, Palisade Aviation

It is said that experience is a hard teacher, because it gives the test first and the lesson afterward. Since there is no substitute for experience, and we can’t train for every possible contingency, we need a way to develop a pilot’s overall capability across a range of core competencies. Evidence-based training (EBT) was developed to meet this need. In this course, we’ll explore how to apply EBT to helicopter training.
