    The human factor

    Hi,

    here is a link to a video I just finished. It is about human factors research and how itīs translated into daily cockpit simulator training to prevent fatal accidents and incidents.

    Enjoy.

    Chris


    Part 1:

    Parts 2 and 3 will follow soon. I will post the appropriate links in this thread.

    Matt, I wasnīt able to upload the vid directly to mycockpitvideos, maybe you can fix it? (size 101MB).

    Re: The human factor

    Chris,
    This is a very good video and I congratulate you on making it. On a personal level “human factors” is one of the main reasons why I have been involved with flight simulators from the beginning. Ever since I read my first articles concerning human factors back in the early 80's by Richard L. Collins, at the time the editor of Flying magazine I have been absolutely fascinated with this subject.

    I am looking forward to viewing more of your videos. Great video!

    Sincerely,
    Joe Cygan

    Thumbs up Re: The human factor

    Thanks for the interesting video

    Is not so long ago, I have been to a lecture about this topic. It is a very exciting topic, where for instance, we were shown a movie clip.
    Now You can try to concentrate and count, and see if you get the right result. It may be difficult



    We also got the simple exercise to say the alphabet, it was no problem.
    Afterwards we had to count to 26, it was no problem.
    So we had to combine both tasks, a1, b2, c3, etc., we could not do it quite so fast as the previous tasks, and show the limitation in our brain when we are exposed to a unknown exersice.

    Did you spot the funny bear? The test shows that if you concentrate on one task, so you can easily overlook other sudden problems, and here we were not in a stressful situation, with 200 pax and a faulty engine on fire.

    Looking forward to the next videos Chris

    Re: The human factor

    Thank you all for your kind remarks, fellows!

    Here is part 2 of the video. It exemplifies some aspects of HF research on the basis of a accident that took place in real. Part 3 is in the process of making.
    BTW, if there are any people here with professional experience in flight safety, you are kindly invited to get in contact with me via PM to optimise the videos I plan to make.

    Cheers
    Chris
