REDUCE THE TERROR OF PILOT ERROR The most effective aviation safety tools ever, Controlling Pilot Error guides give you expert protection against the causes of up to 80% of aviation accidents—pilot mistakes. Each title provides: • Real-life pilot stories • Valuable “save-yourself” techniques and safety tips • Clear and concise analysis of error sets Controlling Pilot ErrorCULTURE, ENVIRONMENT, AND CRM Pilot decision making is impacted by many influences. A knowledge of recent discoveries on aviators’ decisions and crew cockpit interactions during crisis is important to all pilots. Tony Kern’s Culture, Environment, and CRM confronts the human factors behind most aviation mishaps. Applying scientific explanations to allow you to: • Recognize the psychological booby traps that imperil lives • Put firewalls between you and the human factors that doom flights • Improve priceless pilot judgement skills with proven techniques • Adopt a simple four-step backup plan for flight-critical decisions • Apply the lifesaving CRM loop process and specific tested CRM tools and techniques for safer flying • Learn why followership is as essential to good decision making as leadership • Discover why, though human failing is inevitable, it need not be fatal BEST FOR PILOTS • Build your knowledge base • Increase your confidence • Sharpen your skills • Learn lifesaving tips Tony Kern is Editor of the Controlling Pilot Error Series and a former lieutenant colonel who created the United States Air Force’s human-factors training program. He also wrote three best-selling books on aviation for McGraw-Hill.

Advances in Studies of Human Performance
Author: Gregory Z. Bedny,Inna S. Bedny
Pubpsher: CRC Press
Category: Technology & Engineering
This book presents new data in Applied Activity Theory (AAT) and Systemic-Structural Activity Theory (SSAT), that can be used in the study of human performance. The SSAT is the high-level generality theory that offers standardized principles of the analyses of human activity. These principles can be utilized in theoretical and applied studies. This multi-contributed book offers a selection of works that will provide a holistic picture of the field. The new data can be utilized for the study of extremely complex human-machine and human-computer interaction systems, and for evaluation of efficiency, complexity, and reliability of such systems at the design stage. Features Shows examples of self-regulative models of various cognitive processes Illustrates a method of study of production process in the construction industry Includes topics on learning, training, and management Covers a new method of computer based automated support of decision making under risk and uncertainty Presents a new method of evaluation of probabilistic structure of tasks, and the method of assessing reliability of human performance
Here, for the first time, is a systematic model of professional airmanship, for all pockets of the aviation community. With this book as a guide, you too will develop the "right stuff" for today's complex world of flight. Step by step, system by system, the book shows you how to: Use history's greatest flyers as role models--and follow in their footsteps Define standards and measurements for success Understand specific aspects of airmanship, using case studies and lessons learned Handle peer pressure, lack of time, and stress Reduce errors and aid decision-making Manage risks Evaluate your own performance Illuminate a path for self-improvement Advance your career Redefining Airmanship gives you a holistic model of good airmanship and shows you how to use that model to measure and improve your performance. Using the book's Individual Improvement Plan, you can increase your confidence. . .develop flight discipline. . .understand your aircraft. . .know your crew's strengths and weaknesses. . .be an effective team manager. . .and achieve your personal best as an airman.

Probabilistic Modeling of an Aerospace Mission Outcome
Author: Ephraim Suhir
Pubpsher: CRC Press
Improvements in safety in the air and in space can be achieved through better ergonomics, better work environments, and other efforts of the traditional avionic psychology that directly affect human behaviors and performance. Not limited to just the aerospace field, this book discusses adaptive probabilistic predictive modeling in human-in-the-loop situations. This involves situations where human performance and equipment reliability contributes jointly to the success and safety of a mission. This book gets you familiar with a new, powerful, flexible, and effective approach to making outcomes from missions successful and safe.
