Inzpire Limited’s human factors training contract with RAF 22 Group has been extended for a further 12-month period until the end of May 2022.
The training comprises of a two-day introductory course which Inzpire delivers to every individual entering the UK military flying training system prior to them doing their Elementary Flying Training (EFT), followed by a three-day advanced course after EFT where the students can then apply practical experiences to the training. Since the first national lockdown in 2020, Inzpire’s human factors facilitators have also implemented an aircrew-inspired course hand-out to supplement students’ learning.
The two-day pre-EFT course delivers lessons on airmanship; human Factors in aviation; an Apollo XIII case study; practical exercises and the reality of flying training, whilst the three-day post-EFT course delivers lessons on error and blame; communication; mental processing; situational awareness; decision making; resource management; operating as a crew and stress management.
Since the current contract’s original commencement in 2018, Inzpire have delivered 65 of their two-day courses and 27 of the three-day iterations. Furthermore, since 2008, it is estimated that Inzpire have taught human factors courses to around 3000-3500 students and flying instructors.
Tug Wilson, Inzpire’s Head of Human Factors and Safety Division, said: “I, and my facilitators, are very excited to continue our work with ab-initio aircrew from all three Services. Rather than just delivering our training as per the contract, we are mentoring and coaching students through the rigours of flying training without any extra charge to the customer. We feel that we are really making a difference through these interactions, and gain a huge sense of wellbeing ourselves as we help the future generations of military aviation”.
Chris Raynes, Inzpire’s Head of Platform and Training Services business unit said: “We are delighted that our skilled instructors will continue to provide vital human factors tuition to ab-initio aircrew students for a further 12 months. Through this contract extension our highly experienced team will help to ensure that the next generation of aircrew are well prepared for the challenges of modern aviation.”
Inzpire’s human factors training is based around the understanding of interaction between equipment, environment and other people and is applicable to a wide range of sectors and industries. Through the Inzpire Training Academy, Inzpire's human factors and safety experts deliver an array of classroom-based training courses including stress management and effective briefing and debriefing.
