Three consecutive Thursdays in January 2024 - Jan. 11, Jan. 18, and Jan. 25.
Each session begins at 8:00 PM EST (7:00 PM CST, 6:00 PM MST, 5:00 PM PST)
Nearly all aviation accidents have their roots in human error. This updated course will present basic human factors and apply them to Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM) and Risk Management. The influence of the unconscious mind, including our cognitive biases, is explored without the psychobabble, but with practical application examples. Some accident analyses are presented to illustrate important concepts. Live, virtual presentation with limited enrollment to facilitate discussion. Course consists of three live sessions of an hour or a little more each.
To earn FAA Wings credit, attendance is required at all three sessions. If all or part of a session is missed, credit can still be earned by viewing a video of the session content and then completing an online quiz.
Valid for all three Wings credits at the basic level:

Thoughts on Being a Better, Safer Pilot - Vol. 3
I am passionate about helping people to be better and safer.
I am an error-reduction and human factors specialist. I spent more than 40 years in the aviation industry and have accumulated more than 15,000 accident/incident free flying hours. I have flown everything from Cubs to jets and have taught hundreds of people to fly and earn advanced ratings. I piggybacked my aviation career on my academic education in psychology and education. I helped in the development of Crew Resource Management from its inception to the successful systems we have today. For the last twelve years, I have worked with various industries to adapt successful error-reduction methods to other mission-critical operations.
