Course Description

The CPL Human Factors (CHUF) course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of human factors and their influence on aviation safety and performance. This course is tailored specifically for those pursuing a Commercial Pilot License (CPL) to enhance their knowledge and skills in managing human factors in aviation.

Participants will explore various aspects of human performance and limitations, as well as the interaction between humans and the aviation system. By delving into the study of human factors, pilots will gain valuable insights into how individual and organisational factors can impact decision-making, communication, situational awareness, and overall flight safety.

Key Topics Covered:

  1. Introduction to Human Factors: Understanding the relevance and importance of human factors in aviation.
  2. Human Performance and Limitations: Studying the physiological and psychological factors that affect pilot performance, including stress, fatigue, and workload.
  3. Cognitive Processes and Decision-Making: Analysing the cognitive processes involved in decision-making, problem-solving, and critical thinking in the aviation context.
  4. Communication and Teamwork: Exploring effective communication strategies, crew resource management (CRM), and teamwork skills for enhanced collaboration in the cockpit.
  5. Situational Awareness: Developing situational awareness skills and techniques to ensure accurate perception and understanding of the flight environment.
  6. Error Management and Risk Assessment: Examining the concepts of error management, error prevention, and risk assessment in aviation operations.
  7. Automation and Human-Machine Interface: Understanding the interaction between pilots and automated systems, as well as the challenges and considerations related to the human-machine interface.
  8. Organizational Factors: Investigating the influence of organizational culture, leadership, and safety management systems on human performance and flight safety.

The CPL Human Factors (CHUF) course combines theoretical lectures, case studies, group discussions, and interactive exercises to facilitate a dynamic learning experience. Participants will have the opportunity to share experiences with fellow aviation professionals and real-world scenarios and examples will be used to illustrate key concepts and enhance practical application.

By the end of the course, participants will have a solid foundation in human factors principles and be equipped with practical strategies to effectively manage and mitigate human performance issues in aviation. Successful completion of the CPL Human Factors (CHUF) course will provide participants with a valuable credential and a competitive edge in their aviation careers.
