Aircraft coordination training in the U.S. Air Force Air Training Command.Aviat Space Environ Med. 1989 Jun; 60(6):601-2.AS
Coordinated action among the various members of a multi-crew aircraft is essential for safe flight. Aircrew coordination problems typically fall into one of three broad categories: 1) improper task prioritization, 2) ineffective communication, or 3) lack of coordinated action. The airlines and the Military Airlift Command have very successful crew coordination training programs. The Air Training Command (ATC) will soon transition to a specialized pilot training program where pilots destined for large multi-place aircraft will be trained differently from those who will fly fighter aircraft. Under this new training program, ATC will help establish a crew mind-set early in the new multiplace pilot's career by providing initial crew coordination training.
