UK CAA Part 145 Human Factor (Initial)

FAA UAE Regulations 09Brochure ButtonPeople are at the core of our aviation system and the need to remain aware of the potential for human error driven exposure is ever present.

We must strive to ensure we are able to deliver a strong human performance to protect both the person and the system.

Today 80% of Aircraft Accidents and incidents are caused by Human Factor errors. Whether it is pilot error, maintenance error or Air traffic Control or other ground related causal factors, ultimately does not matter human error is human error.
The course is a highly participative and stimulates involvement and provides for powerful HF motivation and awareness. The aim is to give delegates a full introduction to Aircraft Maintenance Human Factors.

The course meets the full intent of UK CAA 145 requirements (Initial human factors training should cover all the topics of the training syllabus specified in GM 145.A.30 (e).
