Crew coordination error has been identified by the Naval Safety Center as the number one cause of Naval Aviation mishaps. To address the problem of crew coordination all Fleet Replacement Squadrons were directed to implement a training program for all Naval Aircraft. Patrol Squadron Thirty-One was tasked to implement crew coordination training for P-3 fleet replacement students and for fleet squadrons. A one day seminar was developed and implemented for Moffett Field and Barbers Point P-3 squadrons. To measure the effect of crew coordination training the Cockpit Management Attitudes Questionnaire was administered to crewmembers prior to and after the seminar. Based on the results of the questionnaire, attitudes that lead to effective crew coordination are enhanced by the seminar. Utilizing t-tests of before and after questionnaire responses, significant changes in attitudes for crewmembers were identified and explained.
