An Aviator's Guide to Decision Making DVD #2

DVD and booklet

This DVD includes the real life experiences of New Zealand general aviation pilots who have survived life-threatening situations in the air. Sue Dinkelacker, a rescue pilot who survived a major accident en route from Wellington to Masterton Hospital, will speak at the launch about her experience.

An Aviator’s Guide to Good Decision Making explains how the human brain, which evolved in a terrestrial environment, can only make one or two decisions at a time even in crisis mode - a fraction of the in-flight decision making ability of a housefly. Stress makes decision making even more difficult.

The DVD explains how to recognise and deal with these issues – for example by programming the brain ahead of each flight with as many decisions as possible to cover foreseeable situations. This should include automatic abort rules so that situations judged too risky on the ground don’t suddenly become acceptable in the air because of the highly “goal-orientated” instincts of many pilots.

The DVD encourages operators not to wait for new technology that improves safety to be mandated before using such advances as the enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) and the “Flysafe” black box, which tracks the location of aircraft even when outside radar coverage.
