APM-A Courses

APTITUDE AND PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT IN AVIATION
APM-A

It is an innovative tool that deepens many themes already present in the aviation sector (CRM, Human Factor, non-Technical Skills) and integrates them with elements of aviation psychology.

Its aim is to accompany people not only in obtaining their psychophysical suitability but also during licence training, airline selections and during their work as a professional pilot.

One of the qualities required of a professional pilot is to maintain situational awareness, i.e. to try in all conditions to have a 360° perception of what is going on, to analyse the facts correctly, and to find a safe and viable solution.

The programme improves leadership, communication, decision-making and personal well-being. The aim is not only to maintain situational awareness, but also to ensure that operations are not detrimental to the pilot’s well-being.

In this process, the person is put at the centre of the project because it is the person who creates the pilot and it is essential to create a context of well-being and knowledge on which to grow the attitudes necessary for pilot activity.
