Abstract

A significant number of accidents over the last two decades have been attributed to loss of control issues which are likely to have been caused, or at least contributed to, by inappropriate or ineffective control efforts by pilots during unexpected critical events. The concept of startle has become more prominent as a result of these, and other recent accidents such as Colgan, Air France 447, and others, and significant research by the author has contributed to a wider understanding of the nature and effects of startle, within an aviation context.

The concept of 'innoculation against startle by exposure to surprising events' is proposed as a means of better equipping pilots to manage unexpected critical events. Using evidence based training as an underlying basis, training pilots to manage unusual and critical events in a positive and constructive manner, will lead to greater self-efficacy and less likelihood of startle-induced, loss of control. Specific training scenarios and training philosophy are discussed.
