Abstract

There were many aeronautical decision-making (ADM) mnemonic-based methods exist. However, there is no empirical research that suggests that they are actually effective in improving decision-making. In this study a short, ADM training course was constructed around two mnemonic methods, SHOR and DESIDE. Forty-one pilots from Republic of China Tactical Training Wing participated: half received a short ADM training course and half did not. Their decision-making skill was evaluated during a series of emergency situations presented in a full-flight simulator on the dimensions of situation assessment, risk management and response time. Significant improvements were noted in the quality of pilots' situation assessment and risk management, however this was usually at the expense of speed of response. The results do strongly suggest, though, that ADM is trainable and is demonstrably effective in improving decision-making.
