  • ATCOs – Air Traffic ControllersLack of Communication & Surveillance example is the empty Quarter
  • SEASR is the European initiative for a single Sky in Europe.
  • The growth plan of the operators in the region, Emirates, Qatar and Etihad put massive stress on the airspace and the related service providers. Already nowadays, considering that we are not even halfway to the projected growth path, we can see operational restrictions, which force us to decelerate. One example is the lateral separation within the region, which is different from FIR to FIR. Over BAH and UAE airspace the lateral separation is 5 NM. Coming to MCT airspace is is 20 NM and once reaching BOM FIR, airplanes are flying 80 NM apart from each other. This puts a lot of limitations on the airline operation.Restrictions in flow rate for departures from Abu Dhabi via LABRI already cause significant delays to our operator during the evening and morning peak departure periods.

  • DC 3I would like to start the presentation with a short interactive quiz, can you identify this aircraft?
  • Caravelle (circa 1975)
  • Lineage 1000
  • B 737
  • Airbus A 319 CJ
  • This same automation and avionics systems has brought training issues where the pilots may have difficulties staying “in the loop” when automation behaves in an unexpected way Modern aircraft are highly sophisticated, high levels of computerization, autopilots, avionics. Why do we still train using the requirement of 1945? 
  • For decades, the content of flight crew training programs has remained unchanged according to regulation whilst aircraft design and reliability have evolved dramatically.Within the JAR world boxes have to be ticked on the generic check form without really considering the specific requirements of the aircraft being flown.(I understand the FAA world is essentially the same) Certainly for recurrent training this severely limits the time available to look at not regulatory training.
  • Improve effectiveness of qualification schemes by developing and introducing - Evidencebased trainingA team lead by IATA has been tasked to examine the whole spectrum of training and report back. The team initially limited the research to aircraft with a min of 40 seats.
  • Today, as part of the Evidence Based Training program, a very large group of operators and training providers are sharing flight safety data with a view to determine what is relevant to training generally and for individual aircraft types. The aim is to determine where we should focus training to achieve maximum benefit.Modern aircraft have the capability to record huge amounts of data, in the case of the new Airbus A 320 family aircraft up to 7000 parameters can be recorded every one or two 2 seconds depending on the FDR standard. This recording can be used to analyze flights after the event for safety analysis.  Many other sources of data are available to analyze aircraft operations and help define training requirements.If the new training procedures are adopted they will most probably be applied to all aircraft types.
  • In 2005, ICAO adopted an international standard for the collection and analysis of flightdata. Today, the industry has a wealth of safety related evidence at its disposal, fromaccident and incident reports, LOSA, safety auditing and Flight Data Monitoringprogrammes. By analyzing this data, we have an opportunity to gather evidence for flight crew training, by weighing risks and looking at those situations, which are more likely to happen.In this presentation data comes from many different aircraft types, data is systematically de-identified and the actual operator or aircraft type is not known to this presenter.
  • I would like to look at 2 examples where evidence is beginning to call into question our established views. One significant training issue which has been identified as a major risk factor in modern aircraft is the go-around. This issue have been chosen because it is representative of most modern aircraft rather than being related to any specific type. We all know that a stabilized approach is better than an unstable approach and there is certainly no suggestion of changing this basic training philosophy. However after analyzing 1,000,000+ flights the data shows that the probability of a heavy landing or runway overrun is not significantly improved by making a stable approach.
  • From the LOSA data base.Pilots are not executing go-arounds from unstable approachesWhen a go-around is executed it is invariably flown poorly, with all engines operating and from a height above D/H
  • The unexpected go around Of the unstable approaches analyzed a very small percentage resulted in a go around, of the go-around’s performed many were considered to be worse than the potential landing had it been allowed to continue. If all pilots fly stable approaches from now we will not stop heavy landings or runway overruns.  This is not the expected result.It would seem that pilots are quite good at salvaging a landing from an unstable approach but not very good at performing a go-around which we thought we had been training for.We must use this information very carefully as the subsequent events after a stable and unstable approach are different. We need to look further at what and how we do thing to establish why this should be.
  • We generally train for an approach to limits with a go-around, many training captains feel that a go-around significantly above minimums can be more challenging, yet we have a time constraint in training this in favor of the check item requirement.
  • Airbus recommends the use of auto pilot for engine out and NPA’s, allowing pilots maximum opportunity to monitor the flight path.The check requirement is a manual approach to D/H with an engine out followed by a manual go-around.
  • “A threat connected to poor visibility on take off, where I have to intervene for a safe outcome, may happen every 3-5 years. Safety would be compromised if I would not been trained. Training for this event has an significant effect.”

      • 14. Systematic safety
      • 15. Compliance based / Prescriptive regulation
      • 16. Objective based regulation
      • 17. Performance based regulation
      • 18. The way forward
      • 19. The EASP
    • The EU/EASA system
      • EASA is supporting the EU Commission in its legislative and monitoring roles
      • 20. EASA exercises independent executive role as certifying authority for certain tasks
      • 21. EASA+ National Aviation Authorities together are covering all certification needs for the whole EU/EASA civil aviation system
      • 22. A clear separation of certification tasks between EASA and National Aviation Authorities has been defined
      Cyprus 2011
    • 23. The EU/EASA system
      • Fundamental pillar of the system is the mutual immediate recognition in all Member States of any certificate issued either by EASA or by a National Aviation Authority
      • 24. The system includes nowadays all 27 EU Member States + 4 EFTA States (Norway, Iceland, Lichtenstein and Switzerland)
      • 25. 7 Western Balkan countries are in the process of joining the system
      Cyprus 2011
    • 26. Cyprus 2011
      Advantages of an Agency
      Legally binding rules
      Higher common safety standards
      “level playing field”
      Type-certificates valid across EU
      One European Counterpart to the FAA
    • 27. Cyprus 2011
      Systematic safety
      Total system approach is based on the fact that the aviation system components – products, operators, crews, aerodromes, ATM, ANS, on the ground or in the air - are part of a single network
    • 28. Cyprus 2011
      Compliance based / Prescriptive regulation
      Binding standards set. Inspections check.
      Pro – easy to understand
      Con – absolute and inflexible
      Example: EU OPS 1.125
      Documents to be carried
      (a) An operator shall ensure that the following documents or copies thereof are carried on each flight:…

      Cyprus 2011
      Objective based regulation
      Objective, goal or target is set. Advisory material provided. Demonstrations needed.
      Pro – greater flexibility
      Con – continued achievement not guaranteed
      Example: CS 25.1309
      (b) The aeroplane systems and associated components, considered separately and in relation to other systems, must be designed so that -
      (1) Any catastrophic failure condition
      (i) is extremely improbable; ……………

      Cyprus 2011
      Performance based regulation
      A measurable level of performance is regularly reviewed. Performance is established, maintained or improved.
      Pro – continuous monitoring and more transparency
      Con - requires intelligent definition and application
      Example: Commission Regulation (EU) 691/2010 on the performance scheme for air navigation services and network functions defines safety key performance indicators

      #1:LEI and Accident rates are highly correlated
      #2:The Traffic is a factor of Risk
      #3:The Traffic growth is a factor of Risk
      The number of Accidents is not included in the Safety index process as an direct input
      For a given LEI, the higher the Traffic, the higher the Risk
      For a given LEI, the higher the Traffic growth, the higher the Risk

      Fuel Contamination
      Accident recommendation for ICAO to consider developing global standards and/or procedures on aviation fuel quality control
      Operators already have requirements to ensure fuel is delivered in accordance with acceptable quality control procedures
      Annex 6
      Doc 8335, Manual of Procedures for Operations Inspection, Certification and Continued Surveillance
      ICAO airport-related manuals address aircraft fuel from perspectives of safety & design of fuel facilities
      Aviation fuel quality control not specifically covered in guidance material
      Procedures would apply to one of many services available at aerodrome
      New guidance material
      IATA to develop procedures for airport operators and fuel services
      ICAO wants to work in partnership with IATA on issue

    • 62. Upper Age Limits for Pilots
      Current Standard requires that if the Pilot-In-Command is 60-64 years, other pilot must be under 60
      Restriction probably has little impact on flight safety… necessary to get change agreed by Council in 2006: 27 voted in favour – 24 required
      ICAO proposes review but data to support change is not available
      Timeline for review:
      Feb 2011: Letter to IATA requesting research documenting performance levels in different age groups, including comparison of 60-64 year olds and younger pilots
      Dec 2011: SL requesting views of States/Organizations
      In response to SL, IATA refers to research results

      • A successful International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) audit of the carrier’s civil aviation authority.
      • 126. The foreign air carrier must have an air operating certificate (AOC) issued by the State of the Operator.
      • 127. The foreign air carrier must have approval from the State of the Operator to provide flights to the United States.
    • Approval to Fly to the United StatesU.S. Government Agencies Involved
      Department of Transportation (DOT): issues economic authority (after air services agreement fully completed with carrier’s government by U.S. State Department)
      Federal Aviation Administration (FAA): safety oversight (issuance of operations specifications, surveillance, and the IASA Program)
      Transportation Security Administration (TSA): conducts airport security review (if needed), and works with carrier on security requirements
      Customs & Border Protection (CBP): establishes passenger data program with carrier, allowing for transportation of people into the United States.
    • 128. International Aviation Safety Assessment Program (IASA)
      The FAA established the IASA program through public policy and legislative action in August 1992.
      The assessment program focuses on the ability of the civil aviation authority (not the individual air carrier’s ability) to adhere to international standards.
    • 129. FAA *IASA Oversight Critical Elements
      Necessary sequence of oversight elements:
      1 - National Law
      2 - National Regulations
      3 - CAA Structure
      4 - Inspector guidance
      5 - Qualified personnel
      6 - Certification activities
      7 - On-going surveillance/validation
      8 - Resolution of Safety Issues
      • *International Aviation Safety Assessment Program
    • IASA Periodic Validation
      • The FAA may re-evaluate any country with carriers having authority to codeshare or operate to the U.S. when there is reason to question whether a country is in compliance and is discharging its international aviation safety obligations.
      • 130. Currently, a risk assessment tool is used to assess when a country should be reassessed under the IASA program.
    • Positive Change
      • As a result of the IASA Program, there has been a tangible improvement in the level of aviation safety oversight in many countries.
      • 131. These improvements will normally result in changes to both a country’s foreign and domestic aviation operations.
      • 132. FAA continues to support the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) safety programs and related activities.
    • FAA’s Rulemaking Process
      Goal: Improve development of FAA regulations by involving interested members of the public early in process.
      The FAA’s Office of Rulemaking manages the agency’s rulemaking program, in partnership with the Office of the Chief Counsel and the Office of Aviation Policy and Plans.
      The goals and performance targets for rulemaking projects are based on the FAA’s Flight Plan.
    • 133. Rulemaking Drivers
      • The decision to conduct rulemaking can originate from:
      Legislative mandates
      NTSB recommendations
      Changes to international standards [ICAO]
      Internal analyses resulting from inspections, audits, accident/ incident investigations, research, etc.
      Desire to leverage safety/capacity benefits of new aviation/avionics technologies
      Agreement to harmonize internationally [e.g., EASA, Canada];
      Changing Administrations
      Environmental factors
      Petitions for rulemaking or for exemption; or
      World events.
    • 134. How are Priorities Set?
      • The Rulemaking Steering Committee establishes the FAA’s rulemaking priorities.
      • 135. The Rulemaking Steering Committee is composed of:
      The Associate and Assistant Administrators with rulemaking responsibility.
      Representatives of the Office of General Counsel’s Regulations Division and the Office of Aviation Policy and Plan’s Regulatory Analysis Division.
      A representative of the Department of Transportation’s Office of General Counsel.
      Meets semi-annually.
      Sets the regulatory strategic vision for the FAA.
    • 136. How are Priorities Managed?

    • 284. Aviation Safety Statements
      Air transport is one of the safest modes of travel. It is also the fastest growing.
      (4.1 accidents/million departures)
      Safety -cannot be compromised and must be enhanced with increased traffic levels.
      Aviation accidents rarely result from a single failure but rather from a combination of events.
      Safety can never be taken for granted - constant effort is needed to maintain its high level in the changing operational and economic context of the global air transport industry.
      The main purpose of ATM services is to ensure that airplanes depart, fly and land safely, at a reasonable cost.

      Concluding remarks
    • 286. Global ATM Safety Regulation- Current situation
      3 basic layers of safety regulation:
      1. International (Global) regulatory arrangements and
      requirements, established and promulgated by ICAO
      (SARPS, Safety Management, USOAP)
      2. Regional regulatory arrangements and requirements
      (EU, EASA, SES II)
      3. National regulatory arrangements and requirements
      ATCOS (IFATCA) believe that: safety standards must be
      clearly defined at an international level (ICAO) and must
      be adopted on a regional basis.
    • 287. Global ATM Safety Regulation-IFATCA POLICY
      IFATCA supports the ultimate objective of achieving global harmonization in safety regulation.
      IFATCA believes that sufficient resources should be directed towards establishing robust and independent safety regulation at national, regional and global levels to encompass ATM equipment, procedures and personnel.
    • 288. Safety Regulation Approaches
      eg. ICAO requirements for Safety Management
      Technical systems (eg. data link)
      Flexible solutions but inconsistency in implementation
    • 289. General View- Trends inAir Traffic Management
      move from:
      Government managed public service
      Commercialized- privatized environment
      ATCOS believe that :Safety is the absolute priority and that it takes precedence over
      every aspect of the current and future ATM system.
    • 290. 197
      safety is the top priority for all aviation actors worldwide
    • 291. IFATCA is a major stakeholder in the ATM system and is committed to the inclusion of the controllers' viewpoint in all future developments of the ATM system. IFATCA also recognizes the importance of all parties working together to achieve the common objective of increasing capacity without compromising safety standards.
    • 292. European ATM Regulation
      ATM safety regulation has been developed considerably in the last 10 years.
      EUROCONTROL Safety Regulatory Requirements
      (ESARRS) ………framework for ATM SAFETY
      EC Single European Sky legislation
      ..aiming at harmonizing the arrangements across Europe and requiring the establishment of national safety regulatory bodies:
      National Supervisory Authorities (NSAs)
    • 293. Think Performance Regulation in ATM- Case Study: EUROPESES II- Single European Sky – 5 pillarsRegulation (EC) No 1070/2009 – Improvement of the performance and sustainability of the European aviation system
      improving safety by a factor of 10
    • 294. SES II- Single EuropeanSky-ATCOs’ perspective
      The view of IFATCA and the ATCOS family, is that the extension of EASA competency to ANS and Airports will reinforce the regulation, oversight and monitoring of ANS safety, and has a central role in the proposed approach to safety performance under the performance scheme.
      IFATCA has embraced the work EASA is carrying out and wishes to have robust and relevant rulemaking and regulation, which should be less influenced by political interest, but be more respectful of the EU rules and regulations for EASA .
      ATCOS believe that the technology pillar, SESAR, will definitely give new advanced tools to ATCOs, that will provide the new generation of ATM technologies and procedures. The new SESAR operational concept aims at moving from today's airspace based trajectories to the time based operations ("4-D trajectories").
    • 295. Regulation (EC) No 1070/2009 – Improvement of the performance and sustainability of the European aviation system
      The Member States, acting in accordance with their national legislation, shall establish consultation mechanisms for appropriate involvement of stakeholders, including professional staff representative bodies, in the implementation of the single European sky.
      Major principle: The human factor plays a key role in ensuring the change process
    • 296. 1st pillar- Regulating performance Scheme
      Main features:
      Definition of Key Performance Areas (KPAs)- (safety, capacity, environment, cost-efficiency)
      Definition of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
      Defn of pan-european targets associated with the KPIs
      Requirement to produce national (or FAB) Performance Plans (PP) – NSAs obligation
      Adoption of binding PP by MS and acceptance by EC
      Introduction of reference periods (RPS) to assess and review results
      Setting up of alert thresholds and
      Sanctions if targets are not met

    • 298. …../…1st pillar- Regulating performance Scheme
      Key Performance Areas (KPAs)- Safety
      17 out of 29 states participating in the SES Regulation (27 EU MS plus Norway, Switzerland), have indicated that they will participate to the Safety KPA by setting some national targets.
      The so-called E3 (Eurocontrol, European Union and EASA) have worked to publish some metrics for KPIs for Safety. The future IR will take the form of an amendment of Regulation 691/2010.
      The ICAO State Safety Programme and SMS framework will be used to draft the proposal.
    • 299. …../…1st pillar- Regulating performance Scheme
      ……./…Key Performance Areas (KPAs)- Safety
      The SMS will be complemented by Management Objectives of ICAO.
      The EC distinguish between the Service Provision Level and the State Management Level. The State’s level assessment will be verified by EASA standardisation inspections.
      Occurrence Severity Classification: Just Culture will be measured (including the lack of Just Culture).
      Concept document will be presented in a stakeholder workshop for NSAs on 13 May and wider stakeholder workshop on 17 June.
      Adoption in SSC 44 on 28 September 2011.
    • 300. SES Safety Performance Indicators – ATCOS’ views
      IFATCA does understand the necessity for government to act as a control mechanism of commercialized ANSPs.
      But are these PIs a true measurement of the ATM system from the ATCO's perspective? Arguably not.
      Many factors beyond the control of any individual ATCO, or ATC Centre, that will influence the outcome of these measurements:
      equipment capability,
      capacity and serviceability,
      military activity,
      traffic priorities,
      resourcing, training,
      airspace design, and
      over-demand etc.
      Different results if measured at a system level, national level, district level or unit / facility level.
      ATCOs must be extremely careful where these results are broken down further to sector, console or individual ATCO level.
    • 301. …/..SES Safety Performance Indicators – ATCOS’ views
      "quantitative" rather than "qualitative“ PIs
      "Safety" PIs tend to measure:
      rates of occurrences per distance flown or
      numbers of flights per volume etc.
      They measure "reported events" after the fact.
      But :
      do they measure "preventative" actions by the ATCO's?
      Can they measure professionalism, caution and separation assurance?
      Whilst the PIs may "infer" the success of these factors by low occurrence rates,
      are these successes then reflected "negatively" in the "efficiency", "accessibility "and "cost effectiveness" PIs?
    • 302. SES Safety Performance Indicators – ATCOS’ views/ suggestions
      IFATCA concludes that PIs should not be read as being totally indicative of ATC performance from an individual, sector or unit perspective. Indeed most of the PIs as currently used have little direct relevance to the operational ATCO.
      So far, IFATCA is not aware of PIs that accurately measure
      the operational performance of an ANSP, although such PIs
      have been suggested for development.
      Concerning safety issues, these could include:
      number of occurrence reports received vs. investigated;
      number of recommendations from investigations made/accepted/implemented; etc.
    • 303. SES Safety Performance Indicators – IFATCA policy
      Global metrics for the performance of the ATM System be developed through ICAO processes as soon as possible.
       Controller expertise must be used:
      in the establishment and settings of metrics that measure the performance of the ATM System
      in establishing and reviewing models used for determining performance of the ATM System to ensure that the models accurately reflect how the ATM system functions.
       in the interpretation of data used to assess the performance of the Air Traffic Management System to ensure that data is not misleading because it is incomplete or incorrectly applied.
      Important that Member Association’s of IFATCA:
      can understand the logic, the targets and the possible impact of these new features in their daily operational work.
      should get involved in the consultation process with regard to the target setting process which is currently ongoing.
    • 304. The “Just culture” concept
      One of the objectives of a “just culture” environment is to institutionalise the improved collaboration between aviation safety and judicial authorities.
      The following description of “just culture” has been developed in Europe:
      A culture in which front line operators or others (pilots,
      air traffic controllers, electronic engineers, etc.) are not
      punished for actions, omissions or decisions taken by
      them that are commensurate with their experience and
      training, but where gross negligence, wilful violations
      and destructive acts are not tolerated”
      “Just Culture” is supported by ICAO (Safety Culture), EUROCONTROL, EU, STAFF ORGANISATIONS, etc.
    • 305. Budapest Conference- 3-4 March 2011 Implementing SES- The Human Factor
      VP S Kallas: “ATM needs to go beyond just the control of aircraft… the social dialogue is being modernized through the establishment by the Cion of a dedicated group of experts to bring the “human factor” to life!!!! …..Here is one idea to start off the reflection: is it possible that we think already of setting up some ad hoc arrangements to improve mobility of controllers?
      P Griffiths-PRB: “Human factor pillar must address social dialogue, which is expressing discontent and a break down in service. Change management cannot be done at the expense of a vital section of the community. However, I will make this clear from the start, it does not mean paying these sections that hold the community to ransom more it means making sure that they are involved and buy into the change management programmes”
    • 306. Budapest Conference- 3-4 March 2011 Implementing SES- The Human Factor
      Many view the voiced concerns of controllers as being
      barriers to progress. This view point is unfounded as
      controllers accept the fact that the advanced technologies
      can bring benefits to the way that they control air traffic
      and they are positive in change management programs,
      as long as
      these advances take place in a co-operative manner
      in the form of consultation with the end users who have
      the operational knowledge with which to turn these
      capabilities of technology into a service.
    • 307. …../…Budapest Conference- 3-4 March 2011 Implementing SES- The Human Factor
      P Goudou-EASA: “…Human Factor is a key element of the safety of the European system. We have to raise safety awareness and make sure that the European pilots and Controllers are properly and regularly trained to avoid any mistakes having a possible fatal outcome.
      D McMillan- EUROCONTROL: Regulation should not be a system of restrictions….but rather it should be the heart of driving forward improvements-making them happen. It should be a help, not a hindrance. It needs to be fit for purpose.
    • 308. 4th pillar SES II- Human factor
      The Human factor plays a KEY ROLE in ensuring the change process in ATM
      Human role
      -no force mobility
      -No social dumping
      Just culture
      Social dialogue and expert group
      Need for all ACTORS to work together in a holistic approach, in order to achieve tangible, effective and realistic results for the benefit of Air Transport Industry around the world
    • 309. Concluding remarks
      Human factor: to be integrated everywhere
      Cooperation is the way forward
      Keep the human in the core of the system
      Social dialogue is the pivotal tool
      SES implementation needs the staff support

      • 35 foot engine-out obstacle clearance is a reality
      • 350. Relevant at 5 points climbing up the valley
      • 351. Performance ignores downdrafts
      • 352. Regulations allow LPC/OPC on the aircraft – but no engine cut.
      • 353. Solution: a simulator is now used.
      • 354. No-one is adequately trained to clear obstacles by 35 feet.
      • 355. Solution: This runway is no longer used for take-off by OA.
    • 252
      Operational Challenges
      Consider left engine failure at V1
      and a wind from the right.
      • Regulations allow LPC/OPC on the aircraft – but no engine cut.

    • 380. 261
      It is unwise to assume that managers (in all aspects of aviation) have the required management and organisation skills to implement safety regulations.
      The skill-set should be defined and a level of competency should be trained and checked periodically, in the same way that pilots have to demonstrate their skills.
      Only the Accountable Manager and Post-holders have to be acceptable to the national CAA, and that is through a subjective assessment.
      The more senior the position and the greater the power and influence, the more important the requirement for training and control.
    • 381. 262
      How can training assist in implementing safety regulations?
      In-house training is preferable (whether private enterprise, national, international) to keep it focused on relevant issues, e.g. assessments of actual risks.
      Training and competency checks for management skills (again, whether private enterprise, national, international) , i.e. for organisational management skills as well as safety management.
      Gradual evolution from the top down, that embraces appropriate industry expertise, rather than quick-fix or commercially-driven approaches.

      Are we really training pilots to fly modern aircraft?
    • 411. Training by regulation
      • By regulation, flight crew training and checking is based on events, which may be highly improbable in modern aeroplanes.
      • 412. Training programmes are consequently saturated with items that may not necessarily mitigate the real risks or enhance safety in modern air transport operations.

      • AQP (Advanced Qualification Program) ATQP

      • FDM (Flight Data Monitoring) (FOQA, FDA, FODA etc.)
      • 435. STEADES (Safety Trend Evaluation, Analysis & Data Exchange System) - IATA accident survey data base
    • Example:
    • 436. LOSA: Line Operation Safety Audit
      4% of all approaches were unstable
      97% of unstable approaches are continued to landing
      10% result in abnormal landings
      Only 3% of unstable approaches lead to a Go-Around
      When a GA occurs – it is almost always poorly performed
      Usually a surprise to the crew
      Very rarely occurs at (the briefed) missed approach height.
    • 437. Flight data study:
      Over 1 million flights analyzed
      3.5% of approaches are unstable (35,000)
      Only 1.4% of them lead to a Go-Around (490)
      slide 302
      • Looked for Landings with High Risk events
      • 438. Unstable 8.0% (80,000)
      • 439. Stable 6.2% (62,000)
      • 440. This was not the expected result
    • Sample size > 300 go-arounds
      Industry study on Go-Arounds
    • 441. AQP data:
      An AQP data study shows that almost twice as many pilot failed to reach the company standard in missed approach maneuver as opposed to the V1 cut.

      Flight Deck
    • 443. Automation
      Automation – probably the most important change in the cockpit in the last 30 years.
      E.g. Recent study by a large airline showed better performance when using automation for maneuvers such as go-around’s, single-engine flight and NPAs
    • 444. Automation challenges
      28% of flights have an Automation error
      Little to no dialogue between the pilots during most of the errors  Monitoring/Cross-Checking
      There are often misunderstandings of autopilot modes.
      Automation skills erode faster than manual handling skills
      Flight Crews are becoming more reluctant to revert to manual flying when automation is inappropriate or fails [IATA Accident study, 2009]
    • 445. 26/09/08
      EASA Briefing - Training For Safety
      Risk of doing nothing
      Complacency with reliable technology
      Devalued and ineffective training programmes
      No impact on Accident rates
      Benefits of Evidence Based Training
      Evidence based programmes adapted by fleet and operation
      Greater focus on normal operations
      Greater emphasis on human performance
      Encourage “out of the box” thinking with developed methodologies to manage risk
    • 446. Conclusions
      This type of analytical approach will allow non technical skills to be trained in a more appropriate environment, not necessarily the Level D FFS.
