Threat and Error Management
Every flight has an associated risk, but through the lens of an airline pilot; how can we safely and effectively eliminate them?
Date and Time:
Wednesday, November 4, 2020, starting at 19:00 Pacific Standard Time (20:00 MST, 21:00 CST, 22:00 EST, 17:00 HST, 18:00 AKST, 20:00 Arizona, 03:00 GMT)
Ross Ferguson
Brief Description:

Threat and Error Management (TEM) is an overarching safety management approach that assumes that pilots will naturally make mistakes and encounter risky situations during flight operations. Airlines have used Crew Resource Management (CRM) and Threat and Error Management (TEM) programs to dramatically reduce the number of accidents and incidents due to human error.

San Carlos Flight Center has invited Ross Ferguson, an airline pilot and flight instructor with more than 25 years of experience, to share tips for a general aviation audience. In his presentation, Ross will describe ways that these skills can be used by pilots even if they are not flying for the airlines. Ross will highlight general aviation safety record, TEM skills, situational awareness, and the startle effect. The presentation will culminate with a short case study involving a Cessna 172.

Don’t miss out on this presentation if you want to become a safer and more attentive pilot.


Ross Ferguson, CFI. Ross has been a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) and Airline Pilot for more than 25 years. He has flown aircraft ranging from Ultralights to transport aircraft including many Airbus and Boeing jets. Ross has owned and operated his own aircraft and is currently a member of the US Yak-52 Aerobatic Team.
