A post flight debrief is a structured review and useful tool. Unfortunately it is also one of the most poorly conducted and most often ignored tools we have available to us to enhance our own performance and safety of our operation.
The Debrief review
- What happened?
- How it happened?
- How it can be improved?
It is important to note that a briefing is not a lecture by a crew member but a professional discussion by the crew about all aspects of the flight.
- How did we perform?
- What did we learn?
- What can the organisation learn?
- What can others learn?
- How will important information be communicated?
