Airline Pilots' Perceptions of and Experiences in Crew Resource Management (CRM) Training

We surveyed over 30,000 airline pilots to assess their perceptions of and experiences in their professional training. In this paper, we describe their responses to a series of questions that focus on Crew Resource Management (CRM) training. The results suggest that most pilots are satisfied with their CRM training and find it useful. However, the respondents indicated that training programs which integrate CRM principles throughout the entire curriculum are substantially more useful than stand-alone CRM training courses.

Biological Experiments in Space as the Object of the Educational Program in Ukraine

For the purpose of organizing and carrying out extracurricular training, and identifying, mentoring and supporting gifted students, the Ukrainian Junior Academy of Sciences (UJAS) was created. Under its auspices, high school students from the USA and the Ukraine, together with astronauts aboard Space Shuttle Columbia, conducted plant science experiments (Collaborative Ukrainian Experiment or CUE) during NASA's STS-87 mission. While the students constructed simulated flight hardware and studied the growth, pollination and fertilization of Brassica rapa plants in their classrooms, the same plant investigation took place in the microgravity environment aboard the Space Shuttle. During the period when the Brassica experiments were being conducted, the International Water Institute (IWI) Program was developed by Brevard Community College in collaboration with the UJAS. The program has expanded and today the IWI program is one of the most productive in Ukraine.

Cognitive Science and Aviation Training: Foundations for Effective Learning and Operational Application

Aviation training has remained largely untouched by decades of development in cognitive science. In aviation, people must be trained to perform complicated tasks and make good operational decisions in complex dynamic environments. However, traditional approaches to professional aviation training are not well designed to accomplish this goal. Aviation training has been based mainly on relatively rigid classroom teaching of factual information followed by on-the-job mentoring. This approach tends to compartmentalize knowledge. It is not optimal for teaching operational decision-making, and it is costly in time and personnel. The effectiveness of training can be enhanced by designing programs that support the psychological processes involved in learning, retention, retrieval, and application. By building programs that are informed by current work in cognitive science and that utilize modern technological advances, efficient training programs can be created.

Education and Outreach Program Designed for NASA Specialized Center of Research and Training in Advance Life Support (ALS/NSCORT)

The NASA Specialized Center of Research and Training in Advanced Life Support (ALS/NSCORT) Education and Outreach Program is designed to engage audiences through concepts and technologies highlighted in the NSCORT research program. The outreach program is composed of three thrust areas. These areas are technical outreach (graduate education, technology transfer, presentations to industry, etc.), educational outreach (professional development, undergraduate, K-12), and public outreach (museums, state fairs, etc.) Program design of the technical and educational outreach began in January 2003. This paper reports anecdotal data on one ALS/NSCORT outreach program and gives a brief description of the other programs in their pilot stages. Technical and educational outreach programs developed to date include: 1) Summer Fellowship Research Program, 2) Distance Learning Course, 3) Key Learning Community Collaborative Project and 4) Mission to Mars.

Flight Paths to Success: Career Insights from Women Leaders in Aerospace

Flight Paths to Success profiles the personal journeys of 33 women who have been, and continue to be, successful in aviation, space, and academia. Each woman was asked to select one question of several questions in five categories: personal career insight, work-life balance, mentorship/sponsorship, avoiding a career stall, and powering through challenging situations. Each woman shared her unique experiences about work-life integration, resilience, career changes, relocation, continuing education, and career advancement. While reading their stories, we saw that there were many flight paths to success and each woman navigated her own way by charting her own course and committing to it. Their stories were published as they wrote them-in their own words.

How to Involve Younger Members and Non-North Americans in Standards Development - an Imperative for U.S. Business

To properly Involve Younger Associates and Non-North Americans in Standards Development, a joint responsibility between companies and SAE is required: Recruit appropriate representatives who represent the diversity of the company. Create an attractive environment in which to work. Lead representatives but do not breathe down their necks. Prepare them properly, including training and mentoring (tagging along). Create attrition plans. Engage in the principles of Strategic Standardization Management. Tie committee work with member company's business, technology and project plans. Make the process more efficient. Facilitate electronic communication and web-based tools. Carefully weigh alternative projects; choose the ones with the highest potential. Recognize the standards development phases. Provide credit (rewards and awards) when credit is earned.

Mentoring SFRM: A New Approach to International Space Station Flight Controller Training

The Mission Operations Directorate (MOD) of the Johnson Space Center is responsible for providing continuous operations support for the International Space Station (ISS). Operations support requires flight controllers who are skilled in team performance as well as the technical operations of the ISS. ISS flight controller certification has evolved to include a balanced focus on the development of team performance and technical expertise. The latest challenge the ISS team faces is how to certify an ISS flight controller to the required level of effectiveness in one year. Space Flight Resource Management (SFRM) training, a NASA adapted variant of Crew Resource Management (CRM), is expanding the role of senior flight controllers as mentors to help meet that challenge. This paper explains our mentoring approach and discusses its effectiveness and future applicability in promoting SFRM/CRM skills.
