Naked Pilot: The Human Factor in Aircraft Accidents

by

Naked Pilot: The Human Factor in Aircraft Accidents Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Investigations into the causes of aircraft accidents have for decades focused on what happened and who did it - very rarely 'Why'? It is the question 'Why' that David Beaty has addressed here, fighting the misnomer of 'pilot error' and propounding that the cause should be sought deeper inside human beings who make apparently simple human errors.

Synopsis:

Focuses on large commercial-aircraft accidents.

Synopsis:

After landing safely back at the airport with a fire on board, no exit on a DC-8 was opened for 23 minutes and 301 people inside perished. Investigations into aircraft accidents often focus on what happened and who did it, but very rarely on why, which is the question this book addresses.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [299]-301) and index.
