First published in 1993. In both general aviation and airline transport there is evidence of an emergent awareness of the importance of instruction in training. The demands of technological change, growing need for pilots at a time when the pool of experienced applicants is diminishing, and growing recognition of the importance of Human Factors to aviation safety, are straining the ability to cope. There is a growing recognition by management, of the contribution of ground and airborne instruction to the efficient operation of aviation in a variety of contexts.
This book shows how professionals in the aviation industry and academic researchers complement each other in their pursuit of more effective and efficient flight training and instruction. Theory and practice each have a contribution to make. The contributions are thus drawn from regulatory authorities, airlines, universities, colleges, flying schools, the armed services and private practice. Such a mix brings differences in approach, style and argument showing both the variety and common aims in the emerging profession of flight instruction.
