Abstract

This study evaluated the attitudes and perception of pilots in the Philippine aviation industry. The evaluation was made in terms of understanding crew resource management (CRM) concepts and adoption of CRM attitudes by the pilots. Eighty-eight pilots from different companies participated in this study. Results showed that attitudes of Filipino pilots strongly adhered to CRM principles. This may be attributed to strong management support for CRM practice and national culture. The Filipino culture of pakikisama and pakikibagay reinforced CRM teachings on teamwork and crew coordination. However, the large power gap in the Filipino culture seems to hinder open communication with superiors. The length of CRM training and its latency did not prove to be significant determinants of CRM-related attitudes. Copyright © 2007, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc.
