||CRM - Crew Resource Management History
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
