Abstract

As aviation moves into its second century, aircraft accidents have become less common, but the rate of decision-based accidents has not decreased in comparison with mechanical-failure based accidents. This is especially true of General Aviation accidents, both in single engine and light twin engine aircraft. While the Federal Aviation Administration has emphasized the use of Scenario Based Training (SBT) in General Aviation flight instruction to address this issue, SBT lessons are not widely utilized and descriptions in associated handbooks of how to incorporate SBT are considered vague by many. This study examines the attitudes of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) and non ERAU Prescott faculty, staff, and students towards the practical addition of SBT into a typical 14 CFR Part 61 and Part 141 Pilot Training Syllabus, through use of a 12 question survey.

Attitudes Toward the Practical Incorporation of Scenario Based Training (SBT) Into a Pilot Training Syllabus

As aviation moves into its second century, aircraft accidents have become less common, but the rate of decision-based accidents has not decreased in comparison with mechanical-failure based accidents.
