Handbook of Aviation Human Factors, Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The application of human factors to aviation has come of age and is thriving, so much so that its influence has spread to other applications. Keeping pace with the field during the decade since its initial publication, the Handbook of Aviation Human Factors has also continued to evolve. Completely revised and updated, the second edition of this groundbreaking resource includes:

  • New chapters on resilience, uninhabited aerial vehicles, and aesthetics
  • Significant revisions and expansions to every chapter
  • New contributing co-authors who bring new perspectives
  • Human factors achievements and current trends

The handbook also explores the history of aviation human factors, current R&D focus, basic research issues, organizational factors, personnel selection, ATC and ATM relevant issues, weather systems, team and individual performance, fatigue, situation awareness, training, and forensics. It boasts contributors from six countries on three continents with backgrounds in academia, industry, government-based research, development organizations, and international aviation organizations as well as practicing engineers.

The demand for aviation continues to expand and aviation must respond to that demand. The safety culture of aviation imposes a need, in advance of change, for sound evidence that the expected benefits of said change will accrue, without hidden hazards to safety and without new and unexpected sources of human error. The multidisciplinary, international scope of this book provides the skills required not only to interpret and generalize findings, but also to translate them into real solutions and safety benefits.

Book News Annotation:

Original authors, their collaborators, and new authors--variously from academia, industry, and military--make whatever revisions in the chapters that are called for by developments during the decade since first publication. After introductory chapters, they cover human capabilities and performance, aircraft, air-traffic control, and aviation operations and design. Among specific topics are organizational factors associated with safety and mission success in aviation environments, processes underlying human performance, personnel selection and training, air-traffic control automation, and weather information presentation. Lawrence Erlbaum is an imprint of Taylor and Francis. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

With more than 10 years since the publication of the first edition, this updated version of the Handbook of Aviation Human Factors is poised to reclaim its title of the most comprehensive book on human factors applied to aviation. Not only was every chapter updated, and in many areas significantly expanded, three chapters were added to address new areas and approaches: resilience, uninhabited aerial vehicles, and aesthetics. In addition to the above topic areas, the handbook includes chapters addressing the history of aviation human factors, current R&D focus, basic research issues, organizational factors, personnel selection, ATC and ATM relevant issues, weather systems, team and individual performance, fatigue, situation awareness, training, and forensics.

Synopsis:

A complete examination of issues and concepts relating to human factors in simulation, this book covers theory and application in space, ships, submarines, naval aviation, and commercial aviation. The authors examine issues of simulation and their effect on the validity and functionality of simulators as a training device. The chapters contain in depth discussions of these particular characteristics and issues. They also incorporate theories pertaining to the motivational aspects of training, simulation of social events, and PC based simulation.

Synopsis:

Completely revised and updated, this second edition includes additional information on important topics in aviation such as security and human error issues, FAAs suggestions and new requirements, passenger satisfaction and risk analysis factors, and crew resource management issues and team work. It contains expanded information on standard subjects including human capabilities and performance, aircraft and flight simulation, air traffic control issues, operations and intelligent avionics, and forensic aviation and accident analysis. The book is suitable as a reference text for a course in Aviation Human Factors as well as a reference for professionals in the field.
