After starting my training in SA, coming to Guthrie was a breath of fresh air.  The teaching was far superior in the classroom and in the air.  Thanks to Guthrie for making me a more knowledgeable and safer pilot.  A great atmosphere and very approachable staff.

Coming to Charles Prince?
Please remember to bring your ID and cash, or a valid Security Pass when you come to the airport.
I doesn't matter that you were here yesterday or that your pass has just expired, either way, you are not going to have a pleasant experience.
Guthrie Aviation has appealed to the Airport Management for an understanding and customer oriented approach to security. The fact is that we do not have any control over Security at the Airport and there is nothing we can do to assist other than to provide you with good warning.

Crew Resource Management

Most pilots would be aware that human behaviour and performance are cited as causal factors in the majority of aircraft accidents. While the aviation industry has benefited from the introduction of new technologies, human operators still continue to make errors. We cannot eliminate human error, but we can catch and minimise errors before their consequences become unacceptable. One of the best ways to achieve this is to train pilots so that they have the necessary human factors skills to cope with the risks and demands of flying.

Human factors entails the minimisation of human error and its consequences by optimising the relationships between people, activities and equipment within a given system, such as aviation. Fatal accidents in passenger-carrying aircraft are very rare, however, safety improvements can always be made.

Structure

Although this course incorporates all aspects of Crew Resource Management, the target audience is primarily for fixed wing pilots from low capacity air transport and charter operations, flying training schools and private operators. It is considered that some of the lessons that can be learned from this training are transferable across other areas of the industry. For example, helicopter operators may need to find specific and related case studies from the CAAZ, NTSB or within their own operations to further support the use of this course within a context suited to their operating environment.

The objective of this syllabus is to provide logical Crew Resource Management training for use via facilitated instruction in a group setting.

The logical way to progress through this training is to follow the courseware in the order provided in the CRM presentation, as follows:

Introduction

Fatigue

Stress

Alcohol and other drugs (AOD)

Communication

Teamwork

Leadership

Situational awareness

Decision making

Threat and error management (TEM)

Airmanship
