FAA Final Ruling - Part 135 CRM Rule Takes Effect - March 22 2011
The FAA has issued a final rule on Crew Resource Management (CRM) training in Part 135 operations, mandating that all Part 135 certificate holders provide such training for all crewmembers, including pilots and flight attendants.
The rule takes effect March 22. HAI supported the proposed rulemaking published May 1, 2009 that led to this rule. “The success and acceptance of CRM training in Part 121 and covered Part 135 airplane operations where it has been mandated is compelling,” HAI said in comments filed on the proposal.
The final rule responds to recommendations from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Part 125/135 Aviation Rulemaking Committee, and condenses current FAA guidance. It is intended to reduce crew-based errors—both in frequency and seriousness. Under the rule, certificate holders must create initial and recurrent CRM academic training programs for crewmembers within two years of March 22. The training programs must address the authority of the pilot in command, processes for communication, the building and maintenance of a flight team, juggling workload and time, keeping situational awareness, recognizing and addressing fatigue and stress, and grasping aeronautical decision-making skills in regards to the certificate holder’s operating environment.
