In spring of 2017, we have started to introduce several improvements and design changes to the Quick Reference Handbook (QRH), which requires the reissue of the QRH volume 2.
These improvements have been successfully implemented on the Global series and are being introduced progressively on our other Business Aircraft platforms, with the Challenger 300/350 series in December 2017 as the next platform and the Challenger 604/605/605 to follow shortly after.
These changes, driven directly from customer comments, are the first results of The Checklist Initiative project. It involved consultations with pilots and industry experts, literature review, human factors research and validation testing, with the aim at improving the operational efficiency our manuals.
Some of the key improvements include:
- The introduction of a Quick Reference Card (QRC) for Immediate Action Items,
- New manual structure and nomenclature,
- Changes to procedure indexing and organization,
- Changes to procedure navigation flow,
- And many more…
To help familiarize flight crews with these changes, an information and training package is available at: https://www.batraining.com/Download/Coming_to_a_Cockpit_Near_You_-_New_QRH_Design.pdf
This will provide background and details on the new features and serve as a guide on how to use this re−designed QRH. We strongly recommend that operators and flight crews acknowledge these changes ahead of the release.
