NBAA PDP Course: Aviation Human Factors

Presented by Richard Williams, Global Jet Services

Held in conjunction with the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA2014).

Air travel in considered one of the safest means of transportation in the world today, yet every now and then, an accident shakes our complacency. All too often, we say, "How could such simple errors have combined to cause such a catastrophe?"

Review of aircraft accidents reveal that, in many instances, a series of contributing events were allowed to develop well before the actual accident. If maintenance technicians, supervisors and managers can break that chain of events, accident occurrences become less likely.

The purpose of this course is to help the front line technician and floor supervisor recognize potential contributing links of an accident and develop individual safety nets to prevent maintenance errors. The ultimate aim of the course is to increase safety awareness, reduce maintenance-induced errors and ultimately increase business profitability.

This course meets NBAA Human Resources Objective 9.
