Publisher Comments:

Principles and Practice of Aviation Psychology is an important addition to the literature in aviation psychology. Covering the history of aviation to the actual pilot actions and tasks today, the editors have brought together a wonderful set of contributors who are leaders in this field. The text presents psychological principles and research pertinent to the interface between a pilot and the cockpit. Understanding the cognitive demands and the capabilities and limitations of the pilot has important implications on selection and training of pilots and display/control designs in the cockpit. Emphasis is placed on the scientific methods of achieving this understanding together with the view that theories and principles of human behavior would have much to learn from practical problems and applied studies.

Book News Annotation:

The study of such psychological issues as performance and perception has obvious applications to understanding the piloting of airplanes. Tsang (Wright State U.) and Vidulich (U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory) present 14 chapters in which authors were asked to write in the area of perspective. Specific topics include perception and attention during low-altitude high-speed flight, spatial orientation, mental workload and situation awareness, aviation displays, selection and execution of pilot tasks, pilot control, automation and human performance in aviation, training, the art and science of flight simulation, and assessing cognitive aging in piloting.
