Human Factors in the Training of Pilots (Loose Leaf)
Drawing on his 44 years of pilot experience and 31 years as a professor of psychology and human factors engineering, the author addresses the questions of how to apply sound human factors principles to the training of pilots and to flying. He takes a positive approach to the subject, focusing on safety and good practice rather than on accidents. While problem areas are acknowledged, and the book points out how certain problems may result in mishaps, it avoids focusing on individual accidents. Human Factors in the Training of Pilots is an authoritative text for pilots wanting to make a systematic study of the human factors issues behind safe flying, as well as for instructors and students.
