Human Factors in the Flight Deck

Taught by an Airline Captain, this course is an airline-oriented mix of Crew Resource Management (CRM), Pilot Decision Making (PDM) and Multi-Crew Operations normally covered at the airline level. Participants will be better prepared to enter the more complex aviation environment on larger aircraft, and will have a better understanding of human physiology and relationships in the flight deck. This course is recognized by Transport Canada to satisfy requirements for PDM and CRM training. This reconfirms our commitment to maintaining airline standards at GFT, and preparing graduates for the real world of aviation.
