    Speakers and discussions:  

    • Scott Turner, American Airlines

      The topic of “Continuous Improvement” will be discussed in an “audience participation” format.

      We will discuss how to improve our flying skills by challenging ourselves to broaden our knowledge base. The importance of getting out of our “comfort zone” when it comes to recurrent training. Holding ourselves to a higher standard. How to avoid “the acceptance of mediocrity.”

      We will discuss how to be part of the solution and not part of the problem in an organization. Show the importance of complying with Standard Operating Procedures and Active Pilot monitoring requirements.

    • Dan Runik, Flight Safety

      Standardization - Why Bother?

      I.    What exactly does Standardization mean?

                  a.)  Most pilots have many misconceptions of what it means

      II.   What’s the point of Standardization?

                  a.)  Exactly what is trying to be achieved by developing and following standards?

      III.  Is Standardization a goal worthy of the trouble?

                  a.)  Acknowledge that developing and maintaining standards are both difficult and not always welcome

                  b.)  Discuss  two embarrassing examples of standards not followed

                  c.)  Make the case that Standardization is really the only option

      IV.  How do you Standardize?

                  a.)  If you decide Standardization is for you, what's the least painful way to do it

                  b.)  Discuss mistakes made at FlightSafety and Gulfstream as we standardized our flight procedures


    • Sunshine McCarthy, Vice President of Education, Baldwin Safety & Compliance

      “Safety Culture…Continuous Nurturing Required”

      Culture is to organizations what personality is to individuals—every person has one and every organization has one.  Whether that culture is supportive or stifling, transparent or guarded, inclusive or selective, it represents the way an organization behaves.  In aviation, a safety culture is more specific than organizational culture because all aspects of culture (values, beliefs, behaviors, standard operating procedures) are examined through the lens of safety. 

      Aviation expert, Dr. James Reason said, “If you are convinced that your organization has a good safety culture, you are almost certainly mistaken… A safety culture is something that is strived for but rarely attained – the process is more important than the product.” 

      Just like in a chemistry lab a “culture” grows given the conditions of its environment.  In this interactive session we will explore the environment required to continuously nurture a strong safety culture.  Prior to the Safety Stand Down, participants will be asked to complete a Safety Culture Survey.  The results of that survey will help to establish the foundation for the session.  Using the Safety Culture Model below, the group’s collective view will be discussed, assessed and challenged.


    • Daniel Mollicone, Ph.D. Pulsar Informatics

      Proactive approaches to reduce human fatigue in aviation operations

      Dr. Mollicone will present an overview of biological factors that contribute to fatigue in a context relevant to aviation operations. He will discuss leading edge tools and bio-mathematical fatigue models that can be used to make better schedules, and aid in the selection of personalized fatigue mitigation approaches. He will discuss fatigue risk and proactive approaches to reduce fatigue, targeting three benefits: (1) reducing on-the job fatigue; (2) reducing potential negative health impacts of fatigue; (3) reducing the risk of automobile accidents when driving home after a flight assignment.
