Overview

"Most books on human factors in aviation cover the subject well, but do not necessarily take the strong practical focus of this book. From his 44 years of pilot experience and 31 years as a professor of psychology and human factors engineering, Jeff Koonce addresses the questions of how to apply sound human factors principles to the training of pilots and to one's personal flying. He takes a positive approach to the subject, emphasising safety and good practice. While problem areas are acknowledged, and the book points out how certain problems may result in mishaps, it avoids focusing on individual accidents." This book is equally useful for the pilot wanting to make a systematic study of the human factors issues behind safe flying, as for the instructor or serious student needing an authoritative text.
