Air Florida was a small intrastate carrier that expanded rapidly after the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978. Both pilots of Flight 90 were hired during this period of rapid growth. For this case study, watch the video and review the NTSB report, focusing on both aircrew training and multiple CRM issues.

Case Study Analysis Requirements
Prepare a 5 page paper (APA format, double-spaced, not including cover page) analyzing the crash of AF Flight 90. You will evaluate the performance of the crew (and other teammates such as ATC, dispatch, etc.) with respect to this module’s lesson on Aircrew Training and CRM. Appraise the qualifications of the crew and highlight any potential deficiencies. How might simulator training have been used to correct these deficiencies? What CRM failures can you identify? Also, include a discussion of the principles of 6th Generation CRM/Threat and Error Management. Do not just summarize the events; include a critical analysis!
