2007 - Closed project - Threat & Error Management (TEM) Project

What is Threat and Error Management?
TEM is an approach to flying that seeks to equip the pilot with the skills to recognise and counter everyday problems which, if ignored, will result in accidents or incidents.

There are two skill sets that are required to fly an aircraft safely:

  • the first being technical (stick and rudder), and
  • the second is non-technical airmanship.

Pilot training has concentrated on teaching the technical skills, with airmanship remaining a nebulous concept left to flying schools and instructors. This project is now closed.
