Performance-based Training & Evaluation of Team Coordination Skills

Flight crews possess both pilot flying duties and critical backup skills known as pilot monitoring duties. Although the captain is ultimately responsible, each crewmember must monitor the aircraft’s flight path and operating systems, while simultaneously cross-checking the actions of the other crewmembers. This is true in aviation and in other team-based occupations. This research-based session explores how task performance and backup skills are combined, ultimately creating team performances to increase safety or productivity.
