Most aviation accidents and incidents are attributed to human errors. Understanding how pilots, air traffic controllers, and other aviation professionals make decisions is critical to improving aviation safety in the 21st century. Decision Research is actively involved in conducting research aimed at developing a deeper understanding of aeronautical decision-making and in developing enhanced aviation training and decision-support tools. Research scientists at Decision Research have worked with aviation associations, airlines, and government agencies from several countries to develop improved procedures, training programs, decision aids, and risk-assessment tools.
