Abstract
In January 1994, the Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine (DCIEM) was tasked by Air Command (AIRCOM) to study human factors issues in CC-130 Hercules operations within what was then Air Transport Group (ATG) - now a component of 1 Canadian Air Division. This tasking reflected a perception that the accident record within the Canadian Forces (CF) fleet was significantly worse than the record of other fleets involved in similar operations. In response to this tasking, a joint DCIEM/ATG team was formed. The activities of this study group were funded by the Chief of Research and Development (CRAD). At the outset, the study team decided to take an approach to this tasking based on controlled experiment and field observations. Through an empirical approach it was hoped to present objective data that would define the extent of any problems identified, and provide a bench mark against which various interventions (e.g., effects of experience level, fatigue, training) could be assessed with regard to their eventual contribution to improve safe flight performance. To this end the team assembled two working groups with the following responsibilities: Crew Behaviour Assessment Group (CBAG) - to develop and validate a battery of behaviourally-based measures that could be used to distinguish between those behaviours indicative of safe flight performance and those that are not.
