"My first exposure to David Roe’s training methods occurred over 10 years ago, and I was extremely fortunate to receive further instruction from him on the R.O.E. Model© in the lead up to my command course 2 years ago.

David's model bridges the glaring gap between the one-dimensional and ambiguous information in aircraft manuals, and the means by which these procedural steps can be expanded to real-world situations, within an ‘Aviate-Navigate-Communicate’ framework.

 

Most significantly, the R.O.E. Model© can be used for any abnormal flight condition, including those without an associated warning message, thus leading to much greater confidence in managing the aircraft during emergencies.

David Harcourt, Captain, Cathay Pacific Airways

 

“The R.O.E Model © is extremely useful for establishing a generic method for dealing with any ECAM that is not a simple ‘1 liner’. It heavily emphasises the important A-N-C ‘top view’ of managing non-normals.”

— Captain

 

“The R.O.E Model © provides a procedural platform with an order of operations that allows you to work through any problem large or small.”

— Captain

 

“Q. Would you recommend the R.O.E Training Solutions one day intensive course to other pilots?  A. Absolutely.  I gained valuable, practical advice. The R.O.E Model © is an excellent tool that every pilot can use.”

— Captain

 

“Q. Did the training you received from R.O.E assist you in passing your command course?  A. Very much so.  Here are my thoughts on the R.O.E Model ©:

  • It provides a solid platform from which to build your normal operation from. As with most things - you're only as strong as your foundation. The ROE model © provides that foundation;

  • During Non-normal Operations the model creates spare capacity and structure. It frees up working memory and assists with critical thinking and problem solving; and

  • I use the model on a daily basis as a line captain. I thoroughly recommend this model."

— Captain

"When stress levels are up, I now have a logical order in my head to hang my hat on. The fluidity of the aviation industry cannot allow for a blind set structure due to the dynamics involved in a non-normal situation, however, if you’re trained to at least think about, consider, action and alter if necessary a rough structural mental model..”

— First Officer

 

“The R.O.E Model © helped me to understand that whatever happens, it can be dealt with the same systematic and rather simple model - in both normal and abnormal situations.”

— Second Officer

 

“The training delivered by R.O.E Training has helped me to build and maintain my confidence in real world and simulator sessions.”

— Second Officer

 

“The R.O.E Model © ensures that you haven’t missed anything; it covers all elements and ensures safe and efficient outcomes.”

— First Officer

“During a period of less than optimal performance David worked with me to develop my confidence and understanding.  He allowed me to learn more about myself and how to be more effective in my role as a second officer.”

— Second Officer
