Aviation Psychology in Practice - 97 edition

Aviation Psychology in Practice (ISBN10: 1840141336; ISBN13: 9781840141337)
ISBN13: 978-1840141337
ISBN10: 1840141336

Summary: This book seeks to extend the boundaries of aviation psychology in two interrelated ways: by broadening the focus of aviation psychology beyond the flight deck to the whole aviation system, and by discussing new theoretical developments that have an impact on this applied discipline. A key feature of these theoretical advances is that they are grounded in a more developed, ecologically valid understanding of practice.

Among the issues addressed in this new moreintegration of theory and practice are the following: what goes on in the flight deck is dependent on the wider organizational context; human factors issues in aircraft maintenance and grounding are critical to aviation safety; our capacity to learn from aviation accidents and incidents needs to be supported by more systematic human factors investigation and research; our understanding of the human factors of accident survival as well as accident prevention must be developed; theories of crew coordination and decision making must be supported by an analysis and constraints; and training should be grounded in a thoroughgoing analysis of the complexity of the job and a full understanding of the training process itself.

This book will be of interest to human factors researchers and practitioners in aviation and related areas. It has particular relevance for those who have a role in training, management or regulation throughout the aviation system. less
