Overview

In every issue, Ashgate's Human Factors and Aerospace Safety: An International Journal publishes an invited, critical review of a key area from a widely-respected researcher. To celebrate the first three years of the journal and to make these papers available to a wider audience, they have been collated here into a single volume. The book is divided into three sections, with papers addressing safety issues in flight deck design, aviation operations and training, and air traffic management. These papers describe the state of current research within a practical context and present a potential future research agenda. Contemporary Issues in Human Factors and Aviation Safety will appeal to both professionals and researchers in the aviation and associated industries who are interested in learning more about current issues in flight safety.
