MY 2 CENTS How is EBT Different?


There are two important aspects of EBT that distinguish this type of training from the check-focused training of the past. The first is core competencies – what do excellent pilots do to make things go well. This behavior is captured in the form of performance indicators (sometimes called behavioral indicators). The core competencies are observable and measurable and include everything a pilot needs to operate safely, effectively and efficiently in today’s aviation environment. For example, they are aware of and do not exhibit any of the nine hazardous attitudes when operating, or they are able to identify the 11 clues that an error chain may be forming.


The second important aspect of EBT is evidence – the results from analyses of global safety and training data. The evidence ranges from normal operations monitoring (line operation safety audits) to data collected from training, accidents and incidents.


EBT Fosters Resilience


Research has shown that another important aspect of EBT is the notion of resilience. In aviation terms, resilience is the capability of an individual or flight crew to recover and bounce back from a challenging situation or serious threat. EBT is fundamentally a learning concept, which significantly reduces the emphasis on checking. This training allows — and even precipitates — making mistakes in a controlled environment to create resilience through effective learning.


I like the idea of a checkride employing a learning element rather than a check- the-box mentality. I think you might too. If the past is any indication of the future, I predict our industry will begin to hear more about EBT in the months and years to come.


To learn more about EBT, search for “ICAO Doc 9995,” the reference document for operators seeking to implement EBT.
