Product description


'Kudos to the authors for successfully marrying the results of hard-core, academic studies conducted in the laboratory with analyses of data from real ATC transcripts, to produce tangible recommendations that can be directly put into practice in the field. An insightful book that will appeal to academics and practitioners alike, and is sure to make a difference in improving the effectiveness of pilot-controller communication.' ----- Loukia Loukopoulos, errorManagement, Europe

'This multi-method book is informative as well as easy and fun to read. The authors include an excellent mix of using real world data and laboratory research to understand ATC-pilot communication. Students in many different areas of research can learn from this example of converging methods. Those involved in the field, especially those with power to make changes in prescribed routines, should read this book.' ----- Vivian Schneider, University of Colorado at Boulder, USA

'The 252-page book comprehensively reviews the aviation communication literature, reports an efficient experimental method to investigate the aspects of aviation speech and listening at play, and delivers solid recommendations to address real-world aviation miscommunications.' ----- Hindsight, 18, Winter 2013
