By request of customers, Delta P has put together groupings of physiology and human factors courses to target specific issues. Some examples follow, but customized programs can be developed.

Inadvertent IMC – 1 Day

This module is to explain what happens to the pilot if he/she runs into a situation where all visual cues are eliminated. Inadvertent IMC encounters are some of the most demanding, disorienting, and dangerous conditions a pilot can experience. These encounters result in the highest percentage of death from helicopter accidents.


Keeping Crew Flying – 1.5 Days

This module discusses those areas that effect every day operations in a flight crew member’s life. We discuss what the problem areas are and how to mitigate them.


Crew Resource Management – 1 Day

This course teaches Crew Resource Management (CRM). CRM is a set of training procedures for use in environments where human error can have devastating effects. Used primarily for improving air safety, CRM focuses on interpersonal communication, leadership, assertiveness, mission analysis, flexibility, decision making, and finish up with fatigue. During the course we will discuss a number of accidents and related the breakdown in CRM.


Aviation Physiology – 2 Days

Aerospace physiology is the study of the changes in physiological parameters associated with the aerospace environment. The physical challenges associated with aviation include acceleration, spatial disorientation, nervous system changes, hypoxia, and many more. Finally we will also incorporate practical aspects of human factors into mission preparation to ensure that aviators are aware of the impact of issues like fatigue, stress, nutrition, and circadian rhythms.


Application of Human Factors/Human Performance for Aircraft Mishap Prevention – 3 Days

The term “human factors” has grown increasingly popular as the aviation world has realized that human error, rather than mechanical failure, underlies most aviation accidents and incidents. If interpreted narrowly, human factors is often considered synonymous with crew resource management (CRM) or maintenance resource management (MRM). However, it is much broader in both its knowledge base and scope. In aviation, human factors is dedicated to better understanding how humans can most safely and efficiently be integrated with the technology and operations, and how all of this can prevent mishaps. This course will cover those topics relevant to operations including Human Factors, Human Error, Spatial Disorientation, Situational Awareness, Stress, Decision,  and more.


Becoming a Crew Member – 2.5 Days

This module creates the foundation from which an individual becomes a functioning crew member.
