Crew Resource Management

Crew Resource Management
The CRM curriculum is a collection of modules that addresses the traditional CRM topics. Although the topics may be familiar, our modules take a unique perspective on the material. The module content is designed for pilots flying two-pilot high performance turboprop, helicopter, or jet aircraft. Based on extensive research into human performance, we present specific examples of how to break down barriers and effectively use available resources in each module. We use a case study approach in each module to reinforce the module material and focus on both the good use of CRM and incidents where poor use of CRM was a causal factor in an accident or incident.


The curriculum content efficiently and effectively addresses the training requirements in Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 135.330, Crew Resource Management Training, and Advisory Circular (AC) 120-51E, Crew Resource Management Training. For recurrent training, the topics rotate year-to-year so your flight crews see different CRM modules each year. A modified version of the CRM curriculum is available for flight or cabin attendants.

The curriculum complies with the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) training requirement for "Crew Resource Management / Human Factors" defined in Chapter 5 of IS-BAO. The standard is for flight crewmembers (pilots and flight attendants) to complete the training during initial and every two years thereafter. IS-BAO recommends human factors / CRM training for schedulers, dispatchers, maintenance personnel, and all others connected with the operation. Advanced Aircrew Academy has a wide variety of Human Factors eLearning and on-site training options for all members of a flight department.
