NBAA SPDP and PDP Course: Aviation Human Factors

Bookmark and Share

Presented by: Global Jet Services

Held in conjunction with the NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference.

Aircraft accident reviews typically reveal that a series of events are allowed to develop well before the actual accident. If aviation personnel can break that "chain of events," accident occurrences become less likely. This course will help all aviation-related personnel develop ways to recognize the potential "contributing links" of an accident and develop individual safety nets to prevent errors. The primary goals of this course are to increase safety awareness, reduce errors and ultimately increase business profitability.

This course fulfills NBAA PDP Human Resources Objective 9.
