The goal of vehicle familiarization training for passengers is to promote “informed consent.” This training includes:
Passenger safety training must include minimal safety procedures, similar to airline safety training, but specific to the commercial space vehicle:
Emergency Procedure Training
The training program itself should be a WOW experience!
Initial crews and ground support personnel may be the engineers that designed the vehicle, however later personnel will not come from the original teams.
Training requirements need to match the duties of crew and controller rather than the design engineer.
FYI:The average NASA flight/mission controller serves for five years.
Would you fly with a pilot who obtained his/her training solely from a text book?
Training facilities must be appropriate for the training objectives.
Scoping training facilities requirements is a crucial step in facility development.
Measure the achievement of the training
Make an official statement of that achievement
Certify personnel (ground and crew) to government standards to facilitate safe and effective operations.
Certify passengers to government standards to facilitate:
Establishes a level of competence and knowledge.
Provides a qualitative measure of service offered
Facilitates the screening of personnel and passengers
Promotes an enjoyable, safe experience.The Most Important Element
What to do and experience during the flight
Crew and Ground Support Personnel Training:
Fundamental Operation of vehicle hardware and software
Nominal operations training
Select number of emergency procedures that safe the vehicle and the crew
Cockpit Resource Management (CRM)Recommendations from Barrios Technology - Summary
Whether government required or industry generated, the extreme conditions and high risk environment of commercial space flight demands standard training with certifiable outcomes for passengers, crew, and ground support personnel.
A safe enjoyable experience is built upon effective and efficient training.
