Student Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of AVIT 250, the student will be able to:
- Through participation in a team review of a prominent airline accident, students will learn to identify human-factor causes and defects in aircraft design, pilot decision making, and training.
- This project reviews the conclusions of accident investigators and encourages students to look deeper, examining the data with fresh eyes, the eyes of a professional pilot.
- Participation in this course will provide students with a set of human factor skills that can significantly enhance flight safety, as well as the know-how required to apply those skills during normal and abnormal aircraft operations.
