Title: General Aviation: Training for Greater Safety


1
General AviationTraining for Greater Safety
Federal Aviation Administration
Presented to AABI Forum / FAA Academia
Symposium By John Allen - Director, FAA
Flight Standards Date 14 July 2011
2
Our Mission
To assure the safety, while enabling the
adventure, commerce and service of aviation.
The FAAs Aviation Safety organizations
functions We set standards for training and
certification of airmen and aircraft. We certify
airmen and aircraft on the basis of those
standards. We ensure their continued operational
safety through oversight and surveillance.

3
Standards
Congress directed the FAAs standard-setting
priorities with passage of HR 5900, the Airline
Safety and Federal Aviation Administration
Extension Act of 2010.
The focus of the Safety Bill is pilot training,
professionalism and professional development. It
includes 8 rulemaking actions 11 studies, task
forces or reports to Congress and 1 database.
It also mandates that we establish a number of
new standards for pilot training and
certification.

Fundamental Skills
Congressional focus is on changes to air carrier
training, but we must not lose sight of GA safety
Almost everyone starts in general aviation. Law
of primacy importance of early
training Fundamental skills (stick and
rudder) Benefits of glider to help develop
energy awareness and energy management
skills Benefits of aerobatics to help develop
meaningful understanding of aerodynamic
principles and practical upset recovery skills.

5
Flight Management Skills
In addition to physical skills, training for good
airmanship should include a range of flight
management skills
Situational awareness Resource management (crew
or single pilot) Communication Especially when
operating with advanced avionics Information
management Automation management Risk management

6
Training Challenges
Development of updated general aviation flight
management training curriculum can draw from best
practices and lessons learned in the air carrier
world through AQP, LOFT, and data from voluntary
reporting programs
CRM (not just for crew environment) SMS (need
to communicate scalability and accessibility to
individual operators) Risk assessment (practical
methods, not abstractions)

7
Training Challenges
We need to collectively rethink our approach to
airman certification standards, training, and
testing
Clearly define the knowledge and skills required
for good airmanship in todays NAS Make use of
updated training methodologies
tools Scenario-based training Integrated use of
simulators Motion-capable devices now accessible
to GA Benefits of vection simulation

8
Role of Academia U.S. NAA Vision
Existing aviation-oriented universities and part
141 training facilities will develop, conduct,
and oversee the USNAAs innovative education
certification programs. Curriculum should
incorporate SMS and lessons learned from AQP,
LOFT, and data from voluntary reporting
programs. An independent board comprised of
representatives from government, industry, labor,
private donors, and academia will establish
program standards and manage funding.
