Briefing Golden Five

Was asked about this as a structure for briefing. Anyone know what these so called golden five rules are? Thanks

Here are my guesses:

Don’t stall
Don’t run out of fuel
Don’t fly into a mountain
Don’t hit another aircraft
Do have enough runway for take-off and landing

Never heard of it. Can't be too "golden" if people don't know about them.

Is this for a "Long Brief" as a lesson, or a Preflight Brief before launching into the wild blue yonder?

Maybe something like:

Short revision of previous lesson
Intro of new topic in general terms
Deeper into topic
Wake students up again
Revision and questions

Airbus have a bunch of Golden Rules which are revised the day before a check so they can be repeated in the briefing and a box ticked on the form to show compliance.

First five minutes of the brief. It may be that itís a small company and everyone knows everyone and this is less important but if you donít (freelance, big company etc) itís a useful tool to set tone, relax people, establish backgrounds/experience levels etc. From the uk Standards doc 24:

ďIt is considered best practice to meet with the crew before commencing the formal briefing. This can have benefits in setting candidates at ease and setting a general tone of conduct, but also the examiner can glean much information from candidates over general attitude and behaviours, any potential impediments to the test ahead and general experience levels.Ē

It doesnít even have to be in the briefing room - I find the taxi journey to the sim a convenient setting. If you do it right the crew donít even feel it as part of the formal check.

My golden rules for briefing:

Tell em when youíre going to tell em.
Tell em
Tell em what you told em.

or

Intro
Body
Summary

In everything: accuracy, brevity and clarity. 40 minutes maximum or you lose them.

For my FI I was taught every long briefing should include:

Introduction
Aim of the Exercise
Theory
Practical Exercise
Airmanship/TEM

Yes this is it. Golden 5 minutes, who are they, what have they been flying before (if an LST), put them at ease, set tone for the day etc etc. It eases your way into the 'formal' brief as an examiner - I normally do this bit in the coffee bar before the official brief (or taxi etc as above is great)

The only time I have heard the phrase "the golden five" was to describe a certain examiner. His MO

-Fear
-Intimidation
-Sarcasm
-Ridicule
-Screaming
