Today, most aviation accidents are the result of human limitations, not mechanical failure. How can pilots can best deal with their limitations to avoid accidents? Steve Murray explores physical and mental limitations, the interface between humans and computers, human error, and problems with human communication. He explains decision-making and the problems of stress. And he examines accident analysis, with a special focus on gliders. This book is an invaluable guide to pilots both general and commercial - and anyone who's considered taking to the air. *** Steve Murray started flying with the South African Air Force in 1952, and still flies privately today, having held pilot's licences for private and commercial aircraft, helicopters, gliders and motor-gliders. He has flown more than 3000 hours, achieved three world gliding records, and instructed trainee gliders for 32 years. He has a doctorate in aviation psychology from the University of Johannesburg.
