EHEST Leaflet HE 8 The Principles of Threat and Error Management for helicopter Pilots, Instructors and Training Organisations

This leaflet introduces and illustrates the concept of Threat and Error Management (TEM) to flight crews and training organisations. Data analysis confirms that a continuing significant number of helicopter accidents occur due to poor decision making and human performance  both prior and during flight. This leaflet contributes to address these weaknesses by describing and illustrating a methodology to manage threats and errors.
