U.S. Army aviation operations present a demanding flight environment. Army aviators are required to fly in unforgiving tactical and environmental circumstances, in which acceptable courses of action to meet contingencies and unforeseen events often need to be determined within seconds. The ability of an aircrew to interact quickly and effectively under these conditions is essential to both safety and mission success. The U.S. Army Aviation Center USAAVNC has developed and approved a new training and evaluation program for Army crew coordination. The Armys Crew Coordination Training Program introduces and emphasizes the principles of aircrew coordination and crew performance, as opposed to the traditional emphasis on individual aviator performance, to meet the demanding requirements of Army aviation. Research and testing to validate the exportable training and evaluation package confirmed that we are certain about what to teach and how to evaluate crew coordination for Army aviation. This program will change our way of doing business and greatly enhance our warfighting effectiveness.
