Trade & Industrial Education
Intergrating Human Factors and Pilot Skills
This course covers aviation physiology and aeronautical decision making to help students improve their judgment and prepare them to be pilot-in-command of an aircraft. Unlike birds, humans are terrestrial creatures who, in order to fly, must adapt to changes in barometric pressure, variation in temperature, movement at high speed in three dimensions, etc. We are sometimes limited by such things as poor night vision, visual illusions, disorientation, motion sickness, and hypoxia, to list a few. In this course, students will be given scenarios that will force them to make decisions regarding various flight situations. As pilot-in-command, you are faced with a continuous stream of decisions during each flight, and whether you and your passengers and/or airplane arrive safely at your destination depends on the wisdom and effectiveness of your choices.
