Aviation and Human Factors How to Incorporate Human Factors into the Field

Langue : Anglais

Auteur :

Air Safety is right now in a point where the chances to be killed in an Aviation accident are far lower than the chances to get the big prize in many of the major lotteries. However, keeping or improving that performance level requires a critical analysis of some events that, despite scarce, point to structural failures in the learning process. The effect of these failures could increase in the next future if there is not a clear and right development path. This book tries to identify what is wrong, why there are things to fix and some Human Factors principles to keep in aircraft design and operations.


  • Shows, through different events, how the whole system learns through Technology, practices and regulations and the pitfalls of that learning process
  • Discusses the use of Information Technology in safety-critical environments and why procedural knowledge is not enough
  • Presents Air Safety Management as a successful process but, at the same?time, failures coming from Technological and Organizational features are shown
  • Offers ways to improve from the Human Factors side, by getting the right lessons from recent events
Chapter I: Commercial Aviation: A General Picture. Chapter II: Event Analysis as an Improvement Tool. Chapter III: The changing role of Technology and People in Aviation. Chapter IV: People as alternative resource: Feasibility and requirements. Chapter V: Organizational Learning in Air Safety: The role of the different stakeholders. Chapter VI: The engine for Organizational Learning: Where it is and where it should be. Chapter VII: The Future of Improvements in Air Safety. Chapter VIII: Conclusions.
