Threat and Error Management

By ICAO named the sixth generation Crew Resource Management (CRM), and in aviation we have accepted that man makes mistakes and errors and this training focuses on how to avoid being “trapped” with errors. Humans design, build and operate aircrafts. The main factor in aircraft accidents are Human Errors and the loss of Situational Awareness (SA) and Controlled Flight into Terrain (CFIT). This new training course will provide you as a crew with the skills you need to operate more safely and effectively as part of a team in the unique environment of corporate aviation. TEM change the way we think and focus on how to be prepared for the situations by having the “big picture” on what is happening and by procedures, training and communication skills try to find threats and errors before they promulgate into violations, incidents and accidents. TEM is becoming more and more an issue on recurrent training in many airlines.

Typical topics on a TEM course is:

  • Human error and reliability, error chain, error prevention and detection
  • Communication and coordination inside and outside the cockpit
  • Decision making
  • Situational Awareness
  • Controlled Flight into Terrain
  • Stress, stress management, fatigue and vigilance
  • Leadership and team behavior, synergy
  • Company safety culture, SOPs, organizational factors
  • Team climate, Planning, Execution and Error Management
  • Information acquisition and processing, situation awareness, workload management
  • Automation and philosophy of the use of Automation
  • Specific type-related differences

A TEM course puts the professional in the middle with many case based studies.


The word "serviceable" needs to be defined in the aviation context. It is referred to 11 times in SKYbrary in other articles.

I suggest something along the lines of "fit for service by virtue of the condition of the part or component".

I am trying to define a hierarchy of words to define "airworthiness" and have proposed the following definition:

To be airworthy an aircraft: · must be legal by conforming to approved data and all pertinent regulations · must be serviceable by its acceptable condition, known life and origin of parts

Is safety of passengers and crew endangered if aircraft is flown at 11000 feet for 31 minutes.

I wish to seek opinion on whether there is any safety threat to passengers and crew in an aircraft unpressurized and flown at an altitude for 31 minutes. The aircraft was thereafter descended to 9000 feet. Regards, Capt R c Rajan

visual departure

I wanna know what kind of weather condition shall be exist in the aerodrome , that a controller can approve the visual departure. in PANS-ATM we can find easily about condition of Visual Approach . but I could not find any usuful information about visual departure and weather condition . for example a controller can approve the visual departuer when the ceiling is below the Initial APP level or visibility is below the 5000 meters?



Assymetric Thrust

New aircraft had some IFTBs and crew reports of assymetric thrust before start mooving on runway for 2 years operating. Question: Any experience.


Any ongoing articles greatly appreciated.

Using AOA for stall/low energy recovery

Using the AOA indicator for energy management and stall recovery is extensively trained and second nature to military fighter/attack pilots. I can find no similar training for civil aviation for those operators with AOA symbology available on the PFD or HGS (HUD) displays. Any articles on this subject greatly appreciated.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I work as Safety Manager in the Netherlands on implementing SMS for General Aviation. That is gliders, motor, delta wings, balloon etc. I wonder if there are articles on the subject how SMS works (or is suppose to work) in GA?

Questions i have: Who is de Accountable Manager? How is SMS to be implemented in aeroclubs etc?

Thanks in advance,

Fatigue Monitoring in aviation Maintenance

For my MSc Thesis I worked on a research about Fatigue Monitoring in aviation Maintenance because I noticed that there was little attention about fatigue in maintenance compared to flight operations. Fatigue is part of everyday working life of aircraft engineers even more with the global economic downturn. My research has been widely mentioned on the last issue of Aviation Maintenance Magazine and has been recently included in the FAA Aircraft Maintenance Human Factors Web Portal. I will be really glad to collaborate or write an airticle about Fatigue's symptoms, root causes and consequences in aviation maintenance.
