Different Personalities: Results of a Risk Study - Wednesday Option

To better meet the demands of busy schedules, HAI is pleased to offer this popular course twice, at different times on different days.

Our individual personalities can negatively affect our attitudes toward risk management and decision-making as a crew. In this session, we will examine the results of a two-year study about risk tolerance, helicopter pilots, and helicopter air ambulance flight crews. The study used the Risk Type Compass, based on the five-factor personality theory. Comparisons between pilots and crew, military- or civilian-trained pilots, single or dual, and age differences will be shared, and we’ll look at personality successes and failures.

Date: Wednesday, March 6 Wednesday, March 6 | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Track(s): General Safety, Maintenance, Operations, Pilot
Instructor: Kenneth Cerney, Leader-Team Dynamics
Price: This course is free to anyone attending HAI HELI-EXPO
