Description

Today’s aviation industry enjoys a remarkable safety record, primarily because it has learned from the mistakes of its past. Through the study of aviation accidents, most of the risks of flying have been identified and the threats they pose to safety can be managed. However, aircraft accidents, such as controlled flight into terrain, loss of control, runway excursions and incursions, and midair collisions still occur, and the hazards of flight remain.

Some accidents happen due to mechanical failure, improper maintenance, or hazardous weather—but the vast majority are caused by pilot action (or inaction). Pilots can commit errors and make decisions that lead to tragic outcomes. Most accidents are not intentional; inadvertent errors made by flight crews arise from normal human physiological, psychological, and psychosocial limitations.

Drawing upon the latest scientific research, aviation safety studies, and accident findings, Human Factors: Enhancing Pilot Performance thoroughly explores the nature of these human limitations and how they affect flight. Most importantly, this book provides best practice countermeasures designed to help pilots minimize their influence on flight performance.

Whether you are a fair-weather private pilot, a new-hire first officer at a regional airline, or a seasoned pilot with thousands of hours under your belt, Human Factors will help you understand why pilots make mistakes and arm you with the knowledge to successfully identify, avoid, and mitigate them.

Reviews

"Dale Wilson extracts from the broad field of human factors relevant subjects for pilots, provides engaging explanations, and illustrates with current accident case studies and research."
— Bruce Chase, M.A.S. Professor and Chair, Department of Flight Science, LeTourneau University

"An excellent overview of the range of technical and human factors, which have been researched, discussed, and debated. The techniques presented have been incorporated into my own flying for many years and have undoubtedly made me a safer pilot.
— Scott Macpherson, chair of the International Business Aviation Council Governing Board and founder of TrainingPort.net®
