Austro Control Paper: The risk of Skill Degradation during the Covid-19 Crisis for Austro Control operational and technical staff (31 March 2020)


This paper is an exploratory investigation to look at Skill Degradation (Abnahme der Fähigkeiten) across Austro Control during reduced services and significant reduction of air traffic as a result of the Covid-19 crisis in Europe (and globally). It does not seek to make policy recommendations at this time, but to survey evidence on the topic. The scope of this paper is to identify what evidence there is to say when and how time out of practice affects skills, competence and performance.
