Editorial Reviews

This is the second of two volumes presenting papers from a recent symposium on contributions of psychology and human factors to the safe and effective functioning of aviation organizations and systems. Topics include selection, training, human factors, air traffic control, maintenance, and situational awareness. Specific subjects include the human-machine interface in air traffic control, decision making under time constraints, and active noise reduction in a helicopter environment. Lacks a subject index. The editors are consultants based in Australia. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
