Pilots have always bitterly resented the label that often masks the true cause of an aircraft accident. The first edition of this book posed a challenge to this concept and brought about a wider recognition of the diverse factors embraced by the term ‘pilot error’. This second edition retains very little of the previous material. The study has evolved and there are contributions from a number of eminent authorities covering subjects such as: the basic principles of human error, accident prevention, pilot judgement, flight-deck automation, controlled flight into terrain accidents, system induced errors, mid-air collisions, human factors in air-traffic control, amongst others. Hardcover, x +185pp, diagrams and line drawings, references, index. Very good, slight foxing endpapers, owner’s name within.
