Edited By Brent. J Hayward, Andrew R Lowe Copyright 2000

    This title was first published in 2000. This is volume one of a two-volume set which presents the reader with strategies for the contributions of psychology and human factors to the safe and effective functioning of aviation organizations and systems.Together, the volumes comprise the edited contributions to the Fourth Australian Aviation Psychology Symposium. The chapters within are orientated towards presenting and developing practical solutions for the present and future challenges facing the aviation industry. Each volume covers areas of vital and enduring importance in the complex aviation system. Volume one includes aviation safety, crew resource management, the aircraft cabin, cockpit automation, safety investigation, fatigue and stress, and applied human factors in training.
