Product description


'Another in the excellent library of aviation safety texts...with copious examples from accident and incident reports and numerous "real life" case quotations...this is essential reading for serious aviation professionals and dedicated researchers, medical personnel and registered aviation medical examiners, psychologists and human factors specialists, training captains, senior pilots and engineers, air traffic controllers, dispatches and operations staff.' Occupational Safety and Health '...the style and content of this book should be of interest to all dedicated pilots.' Flight Safety Bulletin '...each chapter is well laid out and contains an extensive bibliography. Equally useful are the detailed accident/incident reports that accompany each section...As well as the expected topics (such as fear of flying, stress and arousal and fatigue), the authors also cover areas usually neglected in traditional reviews of this topic, such as "stress in air traffic control", "organizations, stress and accidents" and "automation and boredom". I found these chapters particularly interesting...I would recommend the purchase of this volume for any practitioner working with pilots, or those doing performance related research. It is a useful source for teaching and the bibliographers are extensive.' Canadian Society of Aerospace Medicine Journal (Canadian Aerospace Society Newsletter) 'This is one of those books which you begin by dipping into and then find impossible to put them down...this is a weighty tome which should be on the bookshelf of every practitioner of aviation medicine or human factors and should be accessible to all involved in aviation.' Aerospace 'Here is an excellent reference and resource book about one of the more difficult areas in aerospace medicine...this book is a scholarly, well-written, thoroughly referenced, critical review of stress and the psychology of aviation...' Aviation, Space and Environmental Medicine 'I warmed to this book from the very first paragraph of the "introduction", for the simple reason that as well as telling me interesting things, it did so in the best prose style...This is an important book. It is not a mere recital of research results. Rather it reproduces the more important of the conclusions of these results, duly referenced and then proceeds to use them to suggest solutions to problems which beset aviators.' Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology 'The information in this book is very much up to date and relevant to current concerns over aviation safety issues.' BART International


Provides a comprehensive treatment of how stress and fatigue relate to aviation. This work clarifies and distinguishes the concepts of stress and fatigue as they apply to flight, and expounds sufficient theory to provide a basis for the consideration and amelioration of stress effects in aviation.
