Final Paper Detailed Instructions:
After watching the “Flying On Empty” video, you will write a paper with a minimum 3-pages and maximum of 5 pages not including your title page or references page. In addition to following basic APA style and formatting (Typed double-spaced, 12 pt. Times New Roman font, with a running head), your paper should include a Title Page, Main Body, and References — an abstract is NOT required. Video Link: https://youtu.be/35XSMeaguw8 Specific Guidance on the Content of the Paper: Summarize how events contributed to the outcome of the flight.
Focus Area: Show me what you have learned in the course about Human Factors — Apply the concepts you have learned about physiology, fatigue, CRM, risk management, error chain, ADM, etc. The paper should contain your own analysis. All claims and observations or assertions you make should be supported with in-text citations and the long reference put into the references section at the end of the paper. DO NOT quote excessively and DO NOT summarize the accident. Instead, refer to the accident only to support academically the human factor concepts you are examining. DO NOT summarize the video…instead, use examples from the video to support your overall discussion of the human factors. Make this an original work that shows thoughtful consideration of the facts, a firm grasp of the causal factors, and a demonstrated ability to present your position with clarity and knowledge of Human Factors that we have learned throughout the course. Please address your choice of at least two of the following topics:
threats to safety
management of workload and distractions
communication between crewmembers and with others
the error chain
crew resource management
Remember you must support your position with at least 2 references (do not use Wiki-type sources or any other unofficial articles). DO NOT use any accident reports or articles containing an analysis of the events written by others. The intention is not to simply recite what others think about the accident or the human factors involved, but to demonstrate your ability to apply the materials learned in the course. Be sure to format the references according to APA guidelines.
