Abstract
Between 1980 and 1993 aircraft accidents destroyed seven Canadian Forces CC-130 Hercules and resulted in forty-four fatalities. An inspection of the accident investigation boards revealed that human error was a factor in most of these crashes. As a result, the Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine and Air Transport Group of the Canadian Forces were tasked to study the human factors relevant to improving the safety CC-130 operations. This paper summarizes the efforts of DCIEM scientists and Canadian Forces CC-130 trainers to design a simulator-based study creating a metric of effective crew performance (see Banks et al., 1996; Hendy et al., 1997, summaries of additional studies in this project).
