Interruptions and Distractions-Managing Risks
Date and Time:
Saturday, January 18, 2020, starting at 09:00 Eastern Standard Time Download Calendar File
Scott G. Newsome, FAASTeam Representative
Brief Description:

In this presentation we’ll discuss one aspect of Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM): dealing with distractions and interruptions, two hazards that we need to manage whenever we’re walking, driving a vehicle, or flying a plane.

We’ll cite some statistics on distracted driving and discuss how distraction led to the loss of an airliner. We’ll also talk about interruptions – a type of distraction that can be a significant hazard when it occurs in a critical operational phase.

As usual, we’ll offer some suggestions and best practices for dealing with distractions and interruptions
