Eye Tracking: What Are We Looking At?

In the quest for greater automation, modern cockpits are presenting new operational challenges that traditional training methods are not adequately addressing. These challenges include: insufficient knowledge of automation behavior, mode confusion and loss of awareness, poor scanning techniques, and excessive confidence and trust in automation. In March 2019, Toll Helicopters and Seeing Machines commenced a trial of unique eye-tracking technology in the AW139 Full Flight Simulator. Colin will present the insights into pilot scanning techniques and situational awareness provided by this trial.

Fly Neighborly Seminar

Date: Tuesday, January 28 | 3:45 pm – 4:45 pm | Wednesday, January 29 | 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Helicopters generate noise that can cause a negative public response, which can then lead to legislative or regulatory restrictions on operations. Thorough research and testing by the FAA, NASA, and the Department of Transportation Volpe Center have resulted in scientifically derived flight techniques that successfully minimize the effects of helicopter noise emissions. Members and advisors of the HAI Fly Neighborly / Environmental Committee have developed operational and safety strategies for application of noise abatement techniques in critical phases of flight, to include departure, enroute/maneuvering and arrival; with considerations for VFR situations.

This revamped course includes media-rich video and auditory examples. Seminar attendees are eligible to receive FAA Basic WINGS credit, an HAI Rotor Safety Challenge (RSC) course participation token, and an RSC Certificate of Completion.

Nontechnical Skills: From Theory to Practice

In nearly every accident investigation, design problem, or training setting, human factors emerge as a topic of interest. We have all heard the term, but integrating meaningful nontechnical skill (NTS) training and evaluation into operations continues to challenge many organizations. This session addresses NTS from a practical perspective, helping teams build the capacity for resilience that creates sustainable safety.

Offshore Evacuations with Floats with Integrated Life Rafts

In our experience of providing float systems over the past 20 years, we regularly get requests from operators asking how to use the floats, how to enter a life raft, and what to look for in an emergency. This knowledge can mean the difference between life and death. Attendees will learn what to look for when operating the floats during an emergency, what to expect after water contact, and how to operate the Liferaft system.

Distractions: The Silent Intruder

Kim will take attendees through the basic understanding of how the brain handles information, why distractions and interruptions are more prevalent and dangerous than ever, and what to do about it. Attendees will hear about the difference between multitasking and task switching, and what happens when you are interrupted or distracted. They will learn how to resume tasks without skipping a step and how to increase their focus. They will also understand why creating another operating procedure or safety protocol after an incident or accident is not the answer.

What the FRAT?

Why do I need to use a flight risk assessment tool (FRAT)? Do I have to do it? When? Who? The power of a FRAT cannot be realized without understanding the answers to these questions. This session will help operators and aircrew make flight risk assessments a welcome benefit to their operation instead of another piece of dreaded red tape. Attendees will learn about the human factors that drive the need for FRATS, how to create and use one during daily operations, and how to use the data they generate to improve safety and operational efficiency.
