On Saturday 21st November 14 brave souls assembled at the Temora Aero Club to undertake human factors training as part of their RA-Aus Pilot Certificate requirements. For $25 they enjoyed a well presented course relating to Human Factors, along with a delicious sausage sandwich.
Boorowa based ambulance man and pilot Brad Lochrin presented the course, which had been approved by Mick Poole for use by Temora Flight Training. The course was well received by the pilots and students attending, with Brad managing to make a complex subject enjoyable, relevant and meaningful to all who attended.
Human Factors is all about how pilots and passengers react, respond and cope with the often difficult environment we as pilots operate in, along with developing personal minimums and strategies for anticipating and dealing with situations both usual and unusual.
Temora Flight Training will be holding these courses on a regular basis in 2010, as all RA-Aus pilots need to complete the course by September 2010 to continue exercising the privileges of the Pilot Certificate. Contact Jill Bailey on 0412 409171 for more information and to book a place.
