Pilot Competencies are Human Competencies
In order to be safe and effective, an airline pilot must possess certain attributes and capabilities (Pilot Competencies). These Pilot Competencies are by no means extraordinary. In fact, everybody possesses key core competencies, learned during their lifetimes through day-to-day interactions within family, school, social, sport and work environments.
In this infographic we have displayed the Pilot Competencies, and their definitions so that you can understand that they are also human competencies, that we all use everyday of our lives.
- Workload Management? Ask any parent.
- Problem Solving and Decision Making? Not a day goes by without people exercising this competence.
- Situation Awareness - We are constantly assessing our environment and projecting forward so that a good outcome arises…. Fuel in the car, distance to go? Family and colleague’s mood - How will these impact the day?
And so on… The point is, because pilot competencies are rooted in human competencies, there is no reason why YOU should not aspire to being a competent airline pilot.
