Abstract

Human factors training in airlines has become one of the most successful means to improve the safety of aircraft operations. One of the key aspects is the ability to target and adapt the training to airline characteristics and needs. The paper presents, on the basis of a training development done at a specific airline, the philosophy behind the development of an adapted human factors training for pilots, and also covers the strategy and method used in this process. The objective of the process is to provide a clear picture of the airline's needs and to maximise awareness of human factors. This includes activities on safety culture, computer based multi-media training, and seminars. The method applied defines distinct and well defined stages of the training development from a human factors syllabus to concrete training, and associates documentation with each stage.
