Human Factors in Aviation, written for the widespread aviation community--engineers, scientist, pilots, managers, government personnel, and others--is also be of interest to those in nonaviation fields. The authors/contributors were chosen not only as experts in their fields, but because they could write for a wider audience than they customarily address. The organization of the book takes the reader from the general to the specific, first covering broad issues, then the more specific topics of pilot performance, human factors in aircraft design, and vehicles and systems. The physiological and medical aspects are well documented also.

"The importance of an academic, scientifically rigorous and above all, current treatise in this field is underscored by the numbing frequency with which human factors/crew error are cited a s culprits in aviation accidents....This book is by far the most authoritative resource in human factors to be published in many years. It is a successful attempt to define the scientific issues underlying this vitally important field of study and provides a framework to understand future endeavors." -- Donald E.
