Aeronautical Decision-Making: Is My Brain Trying to Kill Me?

For a skill that is so pivotal to one’s survival, it is ironic that we often leave the development of aeronautical decision-making to chance. The axiom “As you gain more experience, you will make better decisions” is clearly outdated. What are you doing to change this?

This course will review the tenets of aeronautical decision-making and explore how it is evolving. In-depth case studies of accidents will help students understand how decision-making occurs in dynamic situations. Students will also develop the building blocks for threat and error management skills.

Helicopter Aerodynamics without Equations

Shawn Coyle will present Ray Prouty’s method of understanding the difficult aerodynamic concepts of rotary-wing flight by removing confusing equations and using clear, easily understood graphics. This program has something to offer for anyone in the rotary-wing industry, including pilots of all experience levels, accident investigators, engineering students, aerodynamic students, or anyone with a passion to learn more. The course will cover what each of these issues means to the pilot in the cockpit, while addressing just enough of the theory to whet the appetite of those wishing to know more.
