This work seeks to extend the boundaries of aviation psychology in two ways: by broadening the focus beyond the flight deck to the whole aviation system; and by discussing relevant theoretical developments. This book addresses: the relationship between what goes on in the flight deck and the wider organizational context; critical safety issues associated with human factors in aircraft maintenance and grounding; learning from aviation accidents and the need to be supported by more systematic human factors investigation and research; human factors of accident survival as well as accident prevention; theories of crew coordination and decision-making and the stresses of the real world; and thorough training.

The editors and contributors cover a wide range of the subject and have excellent experience to draw upon...The layout is clear and easily understandable...the editors are to be congratulated on their achievement.' Aerospace 'This book would readily serve as a text book for an Introductory Aviation/Psychology course, as well as an excellent refresher for those involved in the practice of aviation psychology. The book is printed on good quality paper; it is well bound and benefits from numerous tables and figures. It certainly seems worth its price and will return many benefits to those who invest in it.'
