Human error is cited as a major cause in over 70% of accidents, and it is widely agreed that a better understanding of human capabilities and limitations - both physical and psychological - would help reduce human error and improve flight safety.

This book was first published when the UK Civil Aviation Authority introduced an examination in human performance and limitations for all private and professional pilot licences. Now the Joint Aviation Authorities of Europe have published a new syllabus as part of their Joint Aviation Requirements for Flight Crew Licensing. The book has been completely revised and rewritten to take account of the new syllabus. The coverage of basic aviation psychology has been greatly expanded, and the section on aviation physiology now includes topics on the high altitude environment and on health maintenance. Throughout, the text avoids excessive jargon and technical language.

  • includes further recent revisions to the European JAR syllabus
  • a readable guide which avoids too much complexity
  • suitable not only for private but also commercial pilots
  • based on an international syllabus, the book will appeal to overseas training in English
  • 'a very useful reference book ... worthwhile and recommended' - Australian Air Pilot
