AVM 418 - Threat and Error Management in Aviation


Description:
Principles of Threat and Error Management (TEM) in aviation operations. Course will be offered every year (Winter, Spring).

Prerequisites:
Co-requisite or Prerequisite: AVP 304. Prerequisite: AVP 340.

Credits: (3)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Define the major terms used in the Threat & Error Management (TEM) framework and recall examples of each from a major aircraft accident ( or accidents) discussed in class; to include: threat, error, violation, undesired aircraft state (UAS) and countermeasure.
  • Summarize and explain the nature of the following major threats general aviation pilots and airline flight crew members face: aircraft malfunctions ( engine failure, engine/cabin fire), adverse weather (aircraft icing, LLWS, turbulence, VFR-into-IMC), loss of aircraft control (spatial disorientation, high altitude flight), and collisions (RE, Rl, MAC, CFIT).
  • Distinguish between the six different approaches to explaining human error and describe the major components of James Reason’s model of accident causation.
  • Identify the major defensive countermeasures designed to assist in identifying, avoiding and mitigating threats, errors and undesired aircraft states to include: SOP adherence;  flows & checklist discipline, call-outs, & workload management; distraction management & sterile cockpit compliance; monitoring & automation management; crew briefings; stabilized approaches.
  • Identify and describe “best practice” countermeasures to reduce the effects of the following threats: aircraft malfunctions ( engine failure, engine/cabin fire), adverse weather (aircraft icing, LLWS, turbulence, VFR-into-IMC), loss of aircraft control ( spatial disorientation, high altitude flight), and collisions (RE, Rl, MAC, CFIT).
