Flight Training - April 2011 - 47

Early in the simulator sessions when I was the pilot flying, if I’ heard ATC issue a vector, I’d reach up to spin the heading knob only to get my hand whacked by the captain. From the instructor in back I’d hear, “That’s right, captain, don’t let him do that.” No matter how busy the pilot monitoring is, you don’t deviate from the rules—even if you’re just trying to help out. After I began to fly actual trips, I started to realize that this method really does work. How else can two strangers work like a well-tuned machine to efficiently operate a complicated airplane in a sometimes-harried environment? I quickly realized how primitive my “crew” experience was in the charter world. Now, the FAA, motivated by the success of crew resource

management (CRM) training in larger airplanes, is mandating formal CRM training for charter operators flying under Part 135 regulations. Will it be overkill? I’m not sure a strict CRM plan for two pilots flying a single-pilot airplane is warranted or necessary, but the FAA thinks so. Time will tell if CRM training can dramatically drop the number of accidents at the air-taxi level as it has with the scheduled airlines. If nothing else, starting CRM training earlier in their career paths will better prepare pilots for future jobs flying larger airplanes.
Pete Bedell is a first officer at a major airline who holds type ratings in Boeing 737, Canadair RJ, and BAe Jetstream 41 airplanes.

WHAT IS CREW RESOURCE MANAGEMENT?
Crew resource management refers to the effective use of all available resources: human, hardware, and information. Human resources include all groups routinely working with the cockpit crew (pilot) who are involved in decisions that are required to operate a flight safely. CRM is a set of competencies, which must be evident in all tasks in the practical test standards as appied to the single pilot or multi-crew operation. CRM competencies are: • Communications processes and decisions. • Building and maintenance of a flight team. • Workload management and situational awareness.
