Re-emphasise, to each of the Company's pilots, the potential for the pilot flying to be distracted from the routine operation of the aircraft during the execution of an emergency procedure or even a relatively minor system abnormality procedure, particularly if an unexpected need to give assistance with the procedure develops.

A Notice to Pilots has been issued re-emphasising our Standard Operating Procedures in regard to Pilot distraction during Emergency and Abnormal Procedure management.

All of the required references already exist.

Pilot distraction is already a fundamental component of our Cockpit Resource Management programme and is specifically targeted in our 'hands on' LOFT training in simulator supported aircraft.
