Welcome

"Welcome to Issue 27 of HindSight magazine. The theme of this issue is ‘Competency and Expertise’. It is a topic that links to all previous Issues of HindSight.

Our ability to work effectively depends on the competency and expertise front-line practitioners and all involved in the operational, technical, support, and management functions. Safety isn’t something that is just ‘there’ in the aviation system. People actively create safety. But how do we create safety? And what do we need to do to help ensure that we can continue to do so? Competency and expertise is an important part of the answer.

In this issue, we have articles from operational, safety, human factors and psychology specialists. This is part of what makes HindSight unique – it brings together those who do the operational work, those who support operational work in a variety of ways, and those who study operational work to help better understand it. We are proud to give a voice to some of the world’s leading academic thinkers, and to operational and support specialists who have stories, experience and practical insights to convey. The key is that the articles are interesting and useful to the primary readers of HindSight: air traffic controllers and professional pilots, and hopefully to others who support operational work. Do we succeed? Let us know! In this Issue we explore the nature of competency and fundamental applications and implications for operational training, selection, and procedures, including non-technical skills and contingency. We then zoom out to regulatory and future issues. The regular feature on ‘Views from Elsewhere’ continues with articles from surgery and rail. These articles raise questions for us in aviation, and provide some practical ideas. And in this issue we have articles drawing from the world of sport. HindSight continues online over at SKYbrary with further articles in the online supplement, from aviation and other industries, on the theme of competency and expertise.

We also have ‘What we do’ good practice snippets. We’d particularly like to hear from more readers for this section. And this brings me to the next Issue, which will feature articles on ‘Change’. All readers have been affected by changes, in procedures, regulations, technology, people, incentives, organisation, etc. The pace of change will only increase. How do we change to adapt to the dynamic world of air traffic management? And how do we as individuals, teams, and organisations adapt to these changes? Let us know, in a few words or more, for your magazine on the safety or air traffic management – HindSight."
