HindSight 27 - Summer 2018
Welcome to Issue 27 of HindSight magazine on the topic of ‘competency and expertise’.
Our ability to work effectively depends on the competency and expertise of everyone involved in the operational, technical, support and management functions. Safety isn’t something that is just ‘there’ in the aviation system. People actively create safety. But how? And what do we need to do to help ensure that we can continue to do so? Competency and expertise is an important part of the answer. In this issue, we reach out to operational, safety, human factors and psychology specialists to answer those very questions.
"This issue of HindSight provides some fascinating insights into how we as an industry can make sure that our people have the competency and expertise to cope with the challenges we face and the changing nature of ATM," sais Eamonn Brennan, Director General of EUROCONTROL, in his first ever Foreword for HindSight.
