Effective monitoring was identified as a concern at the first Human Factors Aviation Industry Roundtable meeting. Too many accidents today involve ineffective monitoring as a causal factor. As aircraft get more automated, the challenge of effectively monitoring gets more complex. An Active Pilot Monitoring Working Group was formed and published the Practical Guide for Improving Flight Path Monitoring
through the Flight Safety Foundation. The Effective Monitoring module highlights the recommendations in the report for improving monitoring performance on the flight deck.
