Lee, Seung Yong and Bates, Paul R. and Murray, Patrick S. and Martin, Wayne L. (2016) An exploratory study on the post-implementation of threat and error management training in Australian general aviation. International Journal of Training Research, 14. ISSN 1448-0220

Abstract

Threat and Error Management (TEM) training, endorsed and recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), was mandated in Australia with the aim of improving aviation safety. However, to date, there has been very limited, if any, formal post-implementation review, assessment or evaluation to examine the ‘after-state’ in terms of the e ectiveness of the introduction of TEM. This exploratory study, is a rst step in examining how TEM is regarded among Australian general aviation pilots in terms of its use and e ectiveness. Fifty-nine general aviation pilots participated in a survey. The survey results indicated a large decline in positive support for TEM compared with the ndings of an earlier study. Other results from the current survey indicated a variable uptake of TEM principles and di ering opinions as to its e ectiveness, suggesting further study should be conducted in respect of TEM as an important safety initiative within Australian general aviation.
