Leading Edge Safety Systems was contracted by CASA to develop a practical resource guide on Human Factors (HF) and Non Technical Skills (NTS) aimed at the low capacity passenger carrying sector. A detailed resource guide for pilots, student workbook, facilitators guide and an incident case study video was produced called ‘Airtime’, demonstrating real human factors issues faced by pilots.
Based on the success of the work conducted for CASA in 2009 with the 1ST edition of the human factors guidance material, Leading Edge Safety Systems was re-engaged by CASA in 2018 to develop an updated 2ND edition resource guide on Human Factors (HF) and Non Technical Skills (NTS) aimed at Part 135 aviation charter operators. The guidance material was distributed in 2019 and uses the latest aviation human factors concepts. It is well utilised throughout several sectors of the industry.
