Command and Control

Command and Control Compared with other team settings, flight crew in airtransport present a unique situation where the leader or supervisor regularlyengages in active control. When the captain is assigned cognitively demandingpilot flying duties, the subordinate and often less experienced first officermust perform equally crucial monitoring and support duties. Using a systematicreview methodology, this study reviews the reported effect of crew roleassignment on flight safety outcomes. Our review identified 18 relevant studiesand suggests crew performance factors linked to flight safety are affected bycrew role assignment. Findings suggest a greater number of inherent obstaclesmay exist for optimal crew performance with the captain as pilot flying, raisingthe need for further specific research and policy review in this area. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aviation Psychology and Applied Human Factors American Psychological Association

Abstract

Compared with other team settings, flight crew in airtransport present a unique situation where the leader or supervisor regularlyengages in active control. When the captain is assigned cognitively demandingpilot flying duties, the subordinate and often less experienced first officermust perform equally crucial monitoring and support duties. Using a systematicreview methodology, this study reviews the reported effect of crew roleassignment on flight safety outcomes. Our review identified 18 relevant studiesand suggests crew performance factors linked to flight safety are affected bycrew role assignment. Findings suggest a greater number of inherent obstaclesmay exist for optimal crew performance with the captain as pilot flying, raisingthe need for further specific research and policy review in this area.
