Every issue of Ashgate's Human Factors and Aerospace Safety: An International Journal publishes an invited, critical review of a key area from a widely-respected researcher. To celebrate a successful first three years of the journal and to make these papers available to a wider audience, they have been collated here into a single volume. The book is divided into three sections, with articles addressing safety issues in flight deck design, aviation operations and training, and air traffic management. These articles describe the state of current research within a practical context and present a potential future research agenda. Contemporary Issues in Human Factors and Aviation Safety will appeal to both professionals and researchers in aviation and associated industries who are interested in learning more about current issues in flight safety.

Review:

'All in all, the volume is a good introduction to a very broad area of topical research on human factors in aviation safety, as perceived by leaders in the field.' The Aerospace Professional, October 2005 'As always, expertly edited, bound and presented, here is another in the welcome series of collected position papers and other selected manuscripts from the INternational Journal of Human Factors and Aerospace Safety, aimed at allowing a wider audience access to these critical extended essays.' RoSPA January 2006 'In all this is an interesting volume to anyone concerned with aircraft safety, and more generally to those concerned with aspects of human response in safety critical situations in other industries. The mixture of authors gives a variety of styles, making for easy reading. As well as practical articles, there are in depth studies of human factors from an accademic viewpoint , which are extensivly referenced, and will be a valuable resource fir anyone conducting research.' Logistics and Transport Focus 'Regardless of their level of expertise, readers of Contemporary Issues in Human Factors and Aviation Safety will find this volume to be both highly interesting and informative; an excellent resource that can be used either as a stand-alone text or as a set of readings for use in conjunction with a basic text on aviation human factors.' Ergonomics Vol 50 No 6 June 2007
