In the last years, in order to improve safety and help accidents prevention, human factors issues have been introduced into training programmes in aviation. In particular, as recommended and supported by different institutionsm such as Eurocontrol, FAA, JAA and ICAO, further studies and research on the use of specific tools supporting human factors training in Air Traffic Control are needed. Moreover, the increasing effort to introduce human factors to people working in complex systems, such as pilots and traffic controllers, leads to the problem of how to integrate human factors training with technical aspects, which are already taught through traditional training courses.
