AIIA Course

As we all know, aviation accidents can often be attributed to human error, which is why it's crucial to address human factors such as fatigue, communication breakdowns, and decision-making to prevent accidents from happening.
Fatigue is a significant factor that can impair an individual's ability to perform their duties effectively. Pilots, air traffic controllers, and other aviation professionals who work long hours without adequate rest can experience reduced cognitive performance and alertness, leading to mistakes that could have dire consequences.
Communication breakdowns are also a common problem in aviation, where clear and concise communication is essential for ensuring safe operations. Miscommunication between pilots, air traffic controllers, and other aviation professionals can lead to errors and misunderstandings that can compromise safety.
Effective decision-making is another crucial factor that can impact aviation safety. Pilots and other aviation professionals must make quick and informed decisions that consider the potential risks and consequences of each option. Poor decision-making can lead to accidents and put the lives of crew and passengers at risk.
Addressing human factors is crucial to ensuring aviation safety. Airlines and aviation organisations must implement training programs and policies that prioritise human factors, including fatigue management, effective communication, and decision-making. By doing so, we can prevent accidents and improve safety outcomes for everyone involved.
The Flight Safety Group conducts an online Accident/Incident Investigation Awareness (AIIA) Training Course. The process is based on the international Standards and Recommended Practices for aircraft accident and incident Investigation (Annex 13 — Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation), and includes other relevant references such as the model developed by James Reason, combined with Human Factors Classification and Analysis (HFACS) and the Human Factors Intervention Matrix (HFIX) developed by Scott Schappel and Ernest Wiegman.
