Human factors issues in UK military aviation are identified and mitigated through a combination of proactive support and reactive investigations, both of which employ qualitativedata collection and analysis methods. Each piece of work to identify human factors issues is performed on a standalone basis, but a regular review is undertaken to identify common trends. In the most recent review of trends, thematic analysis was used within the framework of the Accident Route Matrix to determine the most prevalent and qualitatively important human factors issues. The thematic analysis identified a wide range of human factors issues, including resource availability, training, documentation, and fatigue. By applying a qualitative approach throughout the data collection and analysis, it was possible to develop a rich understanding of each trend.
