Airline pilots are expected to report technical aircraft problems to maintenance engineers - and the ability to communicate these problems accurately can result in safer flights, efficiency in operations and fewer costly delays.
This course will show you how to better identify issues with an aircraft’s systems and components. You will also review the maintenance tasks you can perform under special permission as a pilot and learn how to identify human factor issues in maintenance tasks.
