    Humans design, build, operate, and maintain the aviation system. It is no wonder that the majority of aviation accidents and incidents have roots in human factors. With this realization comes the conclusion that quality human factors training is effective in improving safety. This course presents information on human factors in a manner that can be readily understood and applied by aviation practitioners. Emphasis is placed on identifying the causes of human error, predicting how human error can affect performance, and applying countermeasures to reduce or eliminate its effects. The course content follows the subjects recommended in FAA Advisory Circular 120-51E. The course also addresses topics recommended in the International Civil Aviation Organization’s Human Factors Digest No. 3: Training Operational Personnel in Human Factors. The emphasis is from the pilot’s perspective but applies to all phases of aviation operations. The course relies heavily on participation, case studies, demonstrations, self-assessment, and practical exercises.
