Scenario-based training (SBT) is a system that incorporates real-world experiences that are scripted to meet flight training objectives from a specific operational context. It can be utilized for both initial training and more advanced operations. SBT allows trainees the opportunity to improve pilot decision-making skills in a targeted operational context. This course covers the limitations of human decision making as it applies to pilots and demonstrates the use of various SBT approaches.
Attendees will learn —
- Current research from International Helicopter Safety Team reports regarding helicopter accident rates
- Limitations of pilot decision making
- How SBT was developed
- Scenario building based on helicopter accident data
- The benefits of developing SBT for specific operations using software such as Microsoft Flight Simulator/Scenario Builder.
