It is proven that in aviation around 80% of all accidents and incidents are attributable to human error. Human Factors training was introduced in order to address this by allowing pilots to recognise and deal with the causes of error. The increasing number of operations requiring humans interfacing with complex technology, in high risk environments, means that Human Factors training is more important than ever.
Our view is that many remote/unmanned training courses currently offered have emphasis on technical proficiency and legal compliance only. This is the path that aviation training took before the value of human factors was realised in the 1980s. There is a very real danger that in this relatively new and expanding sector these training courses are missing the value of human factors.
With this in mind SalusUAV are launching our Unmanned Human Factors course.
