Crm Training In Me New Environment: Challenges For Flight Crew Training After September 11, 2001
The events of September 11, 2001 have created a new set of security challenges for the aviation industry, including airports, airlines, pilots, passengers, and regulators. Flight deck crews have formed one of the linchpins in a system of prediction, prevention, and response. The first need for new training therefore was to focus on giving flight crews the declarative, procedural, and strategic knowl-edge to look for, spot, report, assess, and respond to threats. In studying how to best train flight crews for the new security challenges, it might be advantageous to leverage the already existing concepts and training in Cockpit/Crew Resource Management (CRM). Towards that end, the current paper examines the content and competencies engendered by traditional CRM programs and compares those to the needs of the new environment after September 11, 2001. In so doing, we offer additions to training contents and procedures that should make CRM training programs more effective in responding to the needs described above. © 2003, FAA Academy.
