1 Safety Committee Business Aviation Pilot Training Project Update Steve Charbonneau – Secretary - July, 2012

2 Safety Committee Efforts Top Ten Concerns 2 1. Professionalism 2. Top Down Safety Culture 3. Fatigue 4. Apathy to SMS 5. Personnel Shortages 6. Impact of Technology 7. Political Environment 8. Next Gen ATC Transition 9. Aircrew Skills Erosion 10. Task Saturation

3 Why does business aviation pilot training need to be improved? Training is the most effective mitigation for high risk flight operations. Recent accident investigations have cited significant gaps in pilot performance: loss of control, runway excursion, CRM, decision making and judgment to name a few. The industry is ready for change. 3

4 Background Safety Committee hosted a training symposium in Washington August 18-19, 2011 Attended by membership, regulators and vendors alike Engaged in discussions to better understand status and issues surrounding pilot training Clearly identified a need for action Business Aviation Pilot Training Project 4

5 SWOT Analysis Practical Test Standards (has not evolved with pace of change – not specific to our needs) Part 142 centers focused on Type certification and/or re- certifying –Initial Training –Recurrent Training Instructors are developed to deliver TCE/CA –Instructor skills and standards, experience Flight Departments are challenged to develop effective pilot training programs –Skills assessments and training mediations? –Must rely upon training partners for assistance/guidance Some issues we have uncovered 5

6 SWOT Analysis Many departments are beginning to take ownership of their programs –Identifying needs, developing scenario based training –SMS is helping to generating risk awareness Training Partners are beginning to evolve –Specialized alternative recurrent training –Non-approved training events Regulators are recognizing gaps and permitting some evolution in training elements –Stall recognition training Some indications of change 6

7 SWOT Analysis Regulatory Oversight –Part 91 issues versus commercial operators Flight Department pressures –Development programs –Skills and standard assessments Training Centers –Technology –Instructors –Curriculum Development and certification Challenges 7

8 Project Purpose The goal is to improve the value proposition of business aviation pilot training. Presently working on: Provide meaningful tools for operators Provide guidance for training partners Provide recommendations for regulators 8

11 Project Roadmap DefinitionMarch 2012 AnalysisOctober 2012 ConstructionSummer 2013 DeliveryOctober Phases 11

12 Milestones Summer 2012 – August 21-22, Training Symposium –First formal team meeting –Open forum to meet with stakeholders October 2012 – AMC –Second formal meeting – review analysis –Open forum – present analysis and update progress Summer 2013 – Training Symposium –First look at draft deliverables October 2013 – AMC –Deliver project report(s) 12

13 Project Deliverables Business Aviation Pilot Standards and Skills Training System Management Development Guide –Members Skills Training Guide –Training Partners Recommendations for Regulation –White Paper? –ARC? Ideas which are being considered 13

14 Current Status Project Team Sub-Groups –Skills and Standards –Operator Guidance –Training Partner Guidance –Regulatory Recommendations 2012 Training Symposium –22 August in Washington DC –NTSB Board Room 2012 NBAA Convention Training Project Update and Presentation 14

15 Training and Evaluations Maturing Safety Culture Modernize Distance Learning Accelerate Regulatory Change Commit Resources – Time and Money Change the Perception of Individual Proficiency Workforce Shortage – Compromises to Safety Vendor Acceptance to Change Immediate Challenges 15

16 A concept to consider… Gap Analysis – needs assessment –Risk Analysis – operational environment, personnel, equipment, culture, operations tempo –Skills Assessment – experience levels (in-cockpit, out of cockpit), –Predictive Data (FOQA, ASAP, HazRep) Training Planning –Multi year plan, budgeted priority –Develop specifications –Partner with vendors –Include development Manage and monitor –Survey staff, oversight Flight Department Training Management 16

17 Analyze and Assess Needs Flight Operations Training Plan Development Training Events Survey and Assess effectiveness Data Capture C-FOQA Coordination Training Cycle – Flight Department Prepare Staff 17

18 Training Partners Simulators need technology upgrades –Visuals, flight envelopes, reliability, debriefing tools Instructor skillsets –Actual experience –Fundamental skills training –Dedicated relationships Training center management –TCPM role –Press regulators to hasten approvals (programs, airports) 18

19 Regulators Update PTS Consider alternative means of compliance –LOA for Part 91 operators? Allow for AQP like training management programs 19

20 Business Aviation Training Training System Management (similar to AQP) Proficiency Based Evaluation/Validation Strategies Data Driven Content C-FOQA, SMS, Training Critiques Threat & Error Mitigation Training Scenario Based Training/CRM Management of Flight Deck Technology Best in Class Standards 20

21 Some thoughts before I sum up…. Pilot Training Survey – Find and Take it – Runway Excursions –Holy Crap! –ALAR Tool Kit –Safe Landing Guidelines FSF Go-Around Survey – Find and Take It C-FOQA –Team performance –Not individual performance (standards) –Steering Committee 21

22 Summary We are just getting started to be successful YOU have to get involved Focused on delivering actionable meaningful tools to be successful YOU have to get involved Springboard for change to be successful YOU have to demand change Questions? 22
