Course Description

There are three basic components in the Threat and Error Management (TEM) model, from the perspective of flight crews: threats, errors and undesired aircraft states (UAS). It is part of pilot’s activity to manage threats and errors. Mismanaged threats are frequently linked to flight crew errors, which in turn are often linked to undesired states. In this course, participants will learn how to effectively handle different kinds of threat and errors. 

Course Objectives

  • Identifying insufficient or ineffective strategies of potential error detection
