Ever wanted to know what's in a black box?
A collection of cockpit voice recorder excerpts leading to an aviation accident. Could be called Black Box 101. Mostly for those who are not familiar with that essential aircraft piece of equipment. Each chapter begins with the setting of the situation to provide some context. An analytical part would have been appreciated to sort of close the loop. Yet, a good introduction to the topic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Black Box transcripts are chilling!!!
This is a great combination of actual transcripts from aircraft accidents and the results of the investigations that followed. I was in aircraft maintenance and this short, effective book is a great tool to show the importance of 'attention to detail' in all aspects of aviation. I'm now going into Air Traffic Control and eventually Pilot Training. The contents of this book only re-inforce the importance of abiding by our many safety procedures, many of which were implemented as a direct result of these disasters. I recommend this book to anyone interested in aviation safety, aviation in general or anyone looking to simply have the hair on your back stand-up (mainly from knowing the words you're reading are from someone no longer with us - god bless)!Was this review helpful?
