FAA To Propose Revised Pilot Training Ensuring Focus On Flightpath Management – $BA $DIA

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing training revisions to help pilots avoid overreliance on autopilot and to ensure focus on flightpath management. The regulatory body is issuing draft guidance and recommended practices, informing that it was important that even on autopilot, flight crews should be aware of the aircraft’s flight path and are equipped to intervene if necessary.

The FAA said the advisory “provides a single framework for operations and training programs. This will help pilots develop and maintain manual flight operations skills and avoid becoming overly reliant on automation.”

A Congressional Research Service report issued in September noted the crash investigations, “raised questions about the increasing use of automated flight control systems and flight crew interactions with those systems, as well as broader concerns regarding human performance and human factors assumptions about pilot reactions to abnormal and emergency situations and alerts.”
