Flight Safety Self assessment

#1

Post by happyskipper » Fri May 13, 2016 11:43 am

While surfing one of our local aviation forums, I came across this "Aviation Safety" self-assessment questionnaire. I attach it here for your information. Please do the the assessment, and post your comments here -

I probably wouldn't have done some if not most of the scenarios they described.

But I'm glad all my scores were in the middle somewhere.

They did this same quiz in the CRM course I did at Comair just over 6 months ago and my results are similar.

I found the questions a bit ridiculous - but some of the answers were even worse - seriously?

I understand the concept - but jeez, really???

Yup, totally agree with you, ridiculous questions and even more absurd scenarios. They make you out as being an idiot that shouldn't be in a cockpit and then they give you answers to explain why you're an idiot. :stars:

Thank heavens someone sees the light - the blokes on the forum where it's all about the flying seem to think it's wunnerful!! :outtahere:

Bearing in mind that I have done several Personality profile questionnaires in my days in the SAAF and Airlines, as well as CRM and flight safety courses - this is, by far, the most ridiculous of the lot. :rules:

I did this particular one a few times to give it a chance :scratchhead: - I answered as best I could, and as honestly as possible, and it concluded that I was incapable of making decisions... :yikes:

Then I just answered at random without even reading the questions or answers, and got everything in the middle....... :wacko:
Good assessment technique - ja raait!!

What bothers me the most is that when the weekend warriors on the other forum read these questions and answers they may be inclined to think that these scenarios are normal, standard procedures, and should be taken to heart!! :stupid3:

Definitely not a safety exercise that I would recommend on doing, unless you like it being an idiot :bingo: Second thought, I don't think this "exercise" even qualifies as a safety exercise.
