An Aviator's Guide to Good Decision Making

Decision making is constantly cited as a leading factor in both fatal and non-fatal aviation accidents. There is a large body of good scientific research on this topic (look in the Library), and most of the regulatory authorities (for example, the FAA, the NZ Civil Aviation Authority, the Australian Civil Aviation Authority, and others) have been working for some time to develop programs to improve decision making -- particularly among general aviation pilots (let's face it, we have most of the accidents).

This program discusses how pilots make decisions and the factors that influence the quality of those decisions. If you understand how you make decisions, then you are in a much better position to improve that process, and the program offers some concrete advice on that topic.
