INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK TO ANALYZE COORDINATION AND COMMUNICATION AMONG AIRCREW, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL, AND MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL

Human error has been cited as a factor in many aviation incidents. Increased automation has not decreased the number of incidents related to human error, but rather has introduced new classes of errors. These errors often result from a lack of coordination and communication among the crew--not only the aircrew but air traffic controllers and ground personnel. It is proposed that an individual's decision style is one tool that can be used to examine the coordination and communication among these team members. Using an advanced aircraft simulator, test pilots flew a generic flight including takeoff, climb, cruise, approach, and landing under both normal and emergency operations. Decision styles were shown to affect work load ratings, the amount of information used during a segment of flight, and the amount and complexity of written information provided.
