Developing a Single-Pilot Line Operations Safety Audit: An Aviation Pilot Study

Developing a Single-Pilot Line Operations Safety Audit: An Aviation Pilot Study A single-pilot form of the line operations safety audit was trialed with amid-sized emergency medical service air operator using two observers with asample of pilots flying 14 sectors. The conceptual basis for observing pilotperformance and analyzing data was the threat and error management model,focusing on threats, errors, undesired aircraft states, and their management.Forty-six threats and 42 crew errors were observed. Pilots generally used soundstrategies to prevent errors and to manage successfully those that occurred.Threats resulting from operational pressures were well managed. The studyachieved its objective of determining whether a single-pilot line operationssafety audit could be successfully developed and used as a basis for systematicdata collection. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aviation Psychology and Applied Human Factors American Psychological Association

Abstract

A single-pilot form of the line operations safety audit was trialed with amid-sized emergency medical service air operator using two observers with asample of pilots flying 14 sectors. The conceptual basis for observing pilotperformance and analyzing data was the threat and error management model,focusing on threats, errors, undesired aircraft states, and their management.Forty-six threats and 42 crew errors were observed. Pilots generally used soundstrategies to prevent errors and to manage successfully those that occurred.Threats resulting from operational pressures were well managed. The studyachieved its objective of determining whether a single-pilot line operationssafety audit could be successfully developed and used as a basis for systematicdata collection.
