    human-factors-in-aviation

    Jetstar Pilot and Macedon Ranges local John Smart will talk about how professional Airline crews are trained and assessed in their Non-Technical Skills and Human Factors every year, and at every simulator session.  Like airline pilots, Private and General Aviation pilots should always strive to be “professional” pilots, and as such should continually update their skills and knowledge.

    In aviation accidents and incidents worldwide, 80% of these are caused in some way by human factors. John's talk will centre around 3 of the major non-technical skills all pilots should continually work on. These are Communication, Management and Situational Awareness. He will look into case studies where human Factors were contributing factors, look at some of the theory behind these skills, and put forward some “tools for the toolbox” that pilots can use not only in their flying lives, but in their personal lives as well.

    As usual, guests are most welcome and John's presentation will be followed by a light supper.

    Our Spring Working Bee will be held on Sunday 03 November to ensure the Airfield is looking in top shape prior to our Australian Women Pilots' Association Victorian Branch Fly-in and Branch Meeting on Saturday 09 November.
    This is a great opportunity to enjoy some comradery with fellow Club Members, a BBQ lunch, a reduction in Airfield Access Fees for those with a YKTN based aircraft, and to contribute to the maintenance and improvement of the Airfield we all enjoy and take great pride in.
    The Maintenance Sub-Committee is preparing a Task List that will be promulgated prior to the Working Bee to help determine what tools etc would be valuable for you to bring along on the day.
