During the 1970s, the aviation community made a startling discovery. Having been so focused on mechanical issues and building safer jets, experts determined as many as 80% of accidents were being caused by human error. Following a string of preventable mishaps leaving thousands dead, researchers found that human factors such as poor communication, lack of teamwork, stress, and fatigue as well as an unbelievably steep hierarchy were to blame.

As a result, NASA, along with the US Air Force, the US Navy, and a few select airlines created what would become Crew Resource Management (CRM). CRM would develop into a cutting edge teamwork and safety culture program that would redefine aviation safety forever. Whether the flight is a small private propeller plane over the Midwest, an international jumbo jet high over the Pacific, or an F/A-18 Super Hornet landing at night aboard an aircraft carrier, CRM has truly changed the human performance and safety culture in aviation.

Evidence Based - Proven Results

CRM has proven so beneficial, for nearly 20 years, US Navy Fighter Pilots, US Air Force Pilots, and every FAA sanctioned airline pilot has been required to attend CRM training at least once a year.

By understanding these human factors, flattening the hierarchy, and learning from their own mistakes, elite Navy fighter pilots have created a culture of "we" over "me" mentality - making them the most precise and dominant operators in the world today.

In the year 5AD, Cicero said, "Anyone can err, but only the fool persists in his fault." Yet repeating mistakes time and again is exactly what countless industries do everyday. Why is nearly every high-risk industry DECADES behind aviation?
