Delta P

Delta P is the premier solution provider of aerospace physiological support services to the non-military aerospace industry. Led by Dudley Crosson, PhD, Delta P provides scientifically-based programs to sustain the performance of crew members, whether in the face of high threat situations, environmental threats and stressors, or advancing age. Along with this, Delta P aerospace physiological support services can reduce unit operational costs associated with personnel performance issues and accident litigation. We have been providing support for various fire department and law enforcement aviation units, and HAA operators across the country for several years. This capability can come in the form of either on-site training for the customer or online as you see here. The realm of aviation safety is changing. Today it takes more than just the traditional safety program. A common enhancement to an SMS program is a human performance component. Even with all of the regulations, the public safety and HAA communities continue to deal with incidents and accidents related to human performance/human factors issues. Delta P can help “fill the holes in the swiss cheese”.
