The Boeing 737 MAX 8 and Its Hidden MCAS Features
September 4th, 2023
When Boeing constructed the 737 MAX 8 as a response to the A330neo, which its competitor Airbus had launched with great success, the timeline and the similarity of the new plane to its predecessor were crucial. In the latest blog article , we will discover how the substantial changes to the MCAS were communicated and assessed.

Why Does an Airliner Crash Into the Ocean in Just Over Four Minutes?
July 13th, 2023
The crash of flight AF 447 into the Atlantic Ocean in 2009 is one of the most complex air accidents which have ever happened. In the latest blog article , we will use the material published so far to shed light on crucial circumstances, actions, but also disregarded relevant CRM principles that contributed to the events, which are perplexing to this day. What has changed since then?
Humans or Machines?
June 30th, 2023
The first question is whether this "or" can exist at all. A myriad of other questions emerges concerning the use of automation. Amongst them, what role humans play in monitoring the machines and how they can interact with them best. What opportunities and risks does automation bring about? What relevance have our human, as well as our rigorously trained professional skills got today? In the latest blog article , we will pursue these questions and, thereby, concern ourselves with aviation and fascinating medical specialities. By the way, don´t forget to enjoy the summer!
A Comprehensive CRM Book Series for You
May 2nd, 2023
New this year: A self-published CRM book series, which you will be able to order in advance, presumably from autumn 2023. In this series, we will occupy ourselves with all CRM themes and transfer its principles to our daily work. I have compiled all pieces of information on the contents, and the formats, the anticipated prices, as well as the order process, for you.
Being a self-publishing author is almost a profession in its own right, which in addition to the actual writing encompasses many other tasks. For example, the books have to be produced, offered to you as a customer, and updated.
You will be able to purchase my books on this website, whereas I also plan to sell them on the internationally well-known platforms. Take a look at interesting facts about this profession, as well as quality control and get a first glimpse of my future publisher´s logo.

The Reunion With the Blog Articles of 2021 and 2022
July 14th, 2023
As I published my 31. article yesterday, it is now time to create something new out of the preceeding ones. Sorted by years and after careful revision, I am going to publish them in the form of electronic and print-on-demand books.
According to the current schedule, they will be released at the end of 2023 or at the beginning of 2024, at about the same time as the first volumes of the CRM Series. As a collection of important and rarer CRM themes, they are meant to supplement the textbooks. Currently, I am preparing a new subpage containing all pieces of information about them.
Of course, I won´t erase the "old" blog articles. Rather, I will offer them to you on this website on-again-off-again if they, for instance, match a current topic perfectly.
Seminars Will Continue in 2024
July 14th, 2023

- PCM Seminar One: 21-23 June 2024
- PCM Advanced Seminar: 11-13 October 2024
- CRM Seminar for Beginners: 28-30 June 2024
- CRM Seminar for Advanced Learners: 25-27 October 2024
This is not only because I still work full-time as a prehospital emergency physician, but also because I want to offer you high-quality classes, which demand intensive preparations each time. You can still book your individual Personality Profile at any time. Also, I am naturally available for your questions and suggestions.
