Decision Making in Aviation

In some respects there is nothing extraordinary about pilot decision making given that the underlying cognitive processes are the same as in ordinary decision making. However, it is the context and the consequences of a poor decision which serve to differentiate aeronautical decision making. Furthermore, decision making does not occur in isolation: it is a joint function of the flight tasks; knowledge; equipment on the flight deck and other stressors ...

The Neurosciences and the Practice of Aviation Medicine
Edited by Anthony N. Nicholson

The Neurosciences and the Practice of Aviation Medicine

This book brings the neurosciences to aviation and is concerned with the physiology, pathology and clinical aspects of exposure to altitude (including mountaineering), linear and angular accelerations, and circadian desynchrony. The text relates the potential effects of the environment to disorders of the central nervous system that are directly relevant to individuals operating in the aviation domain. With this integration the implications of disorders ...

Simulation in Aviation Training
Simulation in Aviation Training
Edited by Florian Jentsch, Michael Curtis and Eduardo Salas

Simulation in Aviation Training

Simulations have been a fixture of aviation training for many years. Advances in simulator technology now enable modern flight simulation to mimic very closely the look and feel of real world flight operations. In spite of this, responsible researchers, trainers, and simulation developers need to look beyond mere simulator fidelity to produce meaningful training outcomes. Optimal simulation training development can unquestionably benefit from knowledge ...

The Multitasking Myth

Handling Complexity in Real-World Operations

Despite growing concern with the effects of concurrent task demands on human performance, and research demonstrating that these demands are associated with vulnerability to error, so far there has been only limited research into the nature and range of concurrent task demands in real-world settings. This book presents a set of NASA studies ...

Crew Resource Management

Critical Essays

Crew Resource Management (CRM) training was first introduced in the late 1970s as a means of combating an increased number of accidents in which poor teamwork in the cockpit was a significant contributing factor. Since then, CRM training has expanded beyond the cockpit, for example to cabin crews and maintenance crews, and has also developed ...

Human Error in Aviation
Edited by R. Key Dismukes

Human Error in Aviation

The papers selected for this volume have strongly influenced modern thinking about why skilled experts make errors and how to make aviation error resilient, and are based on recent human factors research which reveals that errors made by skilled human operators - such as pilots, controllers, and mechanics - are not root causes but symptoms of the way the industry operates.
