Having made an important decision, a Commander of an aircraft should:
  • A
    Explain the reasons for the decision only if asked
  • B
    Explain the reasons for the decision only if time permits in the air
  • C
    Always try to make time to explain the reasons for the decision even if it is after landing
  • D
    As the leader of the crew, never need explain the reasons behind the decision

An explanation should follow after an important decision is made. If time permits, such information should be given as soon as possible; if time does not permit, a thorough de-briefing should take place. Depending on the decision, it is also possible to give a short explanation in-flight and, additionally, a longer explanation on the ground. Providing a clarification on the reasoning behind a commander's decision to other crew members helps establishing the crew's synergy and allow the first officer to gain experience from it.

The sentence "Explain the reasons for the decision only if time permits in the air" does not promise an explanation after landing and is, therefore, incorrect.
