Fundamentals of Aircrew Performance
This book takes the latest developments in psychology (learning, stress management, coaching, personality, etc.), neuroscience (cognition, memory, data-processing, etc.), and linguistics (cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), neuro-linguistic programing (NLP), etc.) and shows how they can be applied in a practical way to improve the performance of aircrew. It complements the skills training and aviation medicine training currently undertaken by aircrew to allow them to perform at their best in the high-stress, data-rich environments of modern aircraft.
‘Airmanship’ is a much-overused word in the aviation world: Part 1 of this book will allow the reader to have a much clearer idea of what it is, together with concrete and practical ways to improve ‘cognitive airmanship’. Each chapter includes sections to aid in the assessment and instruction of these skills.
Part 2 of the book covers Aircrew Performance Coaching, detailing how executive coaching techniques can be combined with sports psychology to provide a unique and proven system applicable to aircrew.

Adrian was a professional military and civilian pilot who, after losing his medical clearance to fly after ejecting from a Tornado aircraft in 2003, retrained as a psychologist whilst remaining in the Royal Air Force. He has a degree in aeronautical engineering from Imperial College, a postgraduate certificate in psychology from Heriot-Watt University and is a qualified coach and coach supervisor with the Association of Professional Executive Coaches and Supervisors. He is married with two grown-up children and a Border Collie called Bracken.
