Cockpit resource management: exploring the attitude-performance linkage

Aviat Space Environ Med. 1986 Dec;57(12 Pt 1):1198-200.


Measured attitudes regarding cockpit management were contrasted for pilots whose line flying performance was independently evaluated by Check Airmen as above or below average. A highly significant discriminant function was obtained indicating that these attitudes are significant predictors of behavior. The performance of 95.7% of the pilots was correctly classified by the analysis. Implications of the results for cockpit resource management training and pilot selection are discussed.
