HeliNOTS (Helicopter Non-technical Skills) is a series of behavioural marker systems, developed by Oliver Hamlet, Dr Amy Irwin and Professor Rhona Flin of the Applied Psychology and Human Factors Group of the University of Aberdeen. The systems are the result of Oliver’s combined masters and PhD studies investigating the non-technical skills utilised by offshore transport and search and rescue helicopter pilots.
There are currently two HeliNOTS systems: HeliNOTS (O) defining the core non-technical skills and behavioural markers for offshore transport pilots, and HeliNOTS (S) defining the core non-technical skills and behavioural markers of search and rescue pilots. Both systems were constructed based upon the results of various mixed-method studies and in-depth focus groups with pilots from both roles, and were reviewed by subject matter experts.
Please click the links below to access the HeliNOTS (O) and HeliNOTS (S) V1.0 handbooks, which include instructions for users, tailored behavioural marker systems and associated non-technical skills rating forms.
Please check back later this year for the launch of the next system, HeliNOTS (T) – a behavioural marker system designed specifically for search and rescue technical crewmen.
