Nontechnical Skills Training in Air Traffic Management Including Computer-Based Simulation Methods

Nontechnical Skills Training in Air Traffic Management Including Computer-Based Simulation... The aim of the present paper is to introduce asimulation-based nontechnical skills training for air traffic controllers, bypresenting the scientific analyses for the training development as well as theprototype training. The training combines theoretical background about humanfactors (situation awareness, decision making, stress and workload management,communication, team work, threat and error management, and fatigue management)with the training of scenarios in a simulation. Furthermore, the trainingcomprises support material for briefings and debriefings as well as aninstructor training. The use of simulation-based methods allows for an activelearning environment that reinforces transfer processes from training to realwork settings of controllers, an adaptation to changing training contents, andthus guarantees an innovative approach to flight safety. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aviation Psychology and Applied Human Factors American Psychological Association

Abstract

The aim of the present paper is to introduce asimulation-based nontechnical skills training for air traffic controllers, bypresenting the scientific analyses for the training development as well as theprototype training. The training combines theoretical background about humanfactors (situation awareness, decision making, stress and workload management,communication, team work, threat and error management, and fatigue management)with the training of scenarios in a simulation. Furthermore, the trainingcomprises support material for briefings and debriefings as well as aninstructor training. The use of simulation-based methods allows for an activelearning environment that reinforces transfer processes from training to realwork settings of controllers, an adaptation to changing training contents, andthus guarantees an innovative approach to flight safety.
