Question:
How does the implementaion of (CRM) crew resource management in aviation industry have resulted in overall improvement in aviation safety.



Replies:
Ali -

CRM was developed after a number of incidences in which the "captain as king" attitude contributed to an undesired outcome. The basis of CRM is that the faculties of all crew members should be employed to promote safety. Although I am not familiar with the actual training, this is the philosophy underlying the program.

You might find more good info by contacting the Airline Pilots' Association or the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (aopa.org).
