Book Summary:

Organized into eight chapters, the book presents fun facts on the following subjects: History, Piloting, Navigation, Weather, Aircraft, Airlines and Military, Facts of Flight, Procedures and Regulations. Through multiple choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank, mix-and-match, and essay questions, the reader is challenged to derive the answer before finding it at the end of the chapter. A true aviation buff, the author teaches new information, clarifies points commonly misunderstood, and provides a wealth of knowledge on the aviation industry. Illustrated throughout with unique and entertaining photographs from Barry Schiff's own collection. Pilots are accustomed to test-taking -- it's part of earning and maintaining all pilot certificates. But this collection of infrequently-asked questions puts the fun back into self-quizzing, encouraging you to stretch your knowledge base and go beyond the subjects learned during student pilot days. Some of Schiff's questions are for pure entertainment. Some take you right to the airport: "Q: A pilot is taxiing along a narrow taxiway at an uncontrolled airport on a cloudless day when he notices another 172 approaching from the opposite direction. Without stopping, how can both pilots be certain that their wingtips will not touch as they pass one another?" Some questions share tips from a pro; other material will spark lively discussions for hangar flying.

Title Experimental Study of the Natural Pilot Flight Proficiency Evaluation Model

Book Summary:

This experiment investigated two major hypothesis generated by the Natural Pilot Model for Flight Proficiency Evaluation. These specify that human adaptability and economy of effort as understood in the context of servo- mechanism theory are important parameters of flying proficiency, and serve to differentiate proficient (''natural'') from poor (''mechanical'') operators. Adaptability was studied by systematically varying the controlled-element dynamics (control-display relationships); economy of effort, by varying the percent of time during which information was displayed (target intermittency). For all experimental conditions, the proficient trackers retained superiority over the poor ones. For intermittency conditions, performance decrement was the same for proficient and poor trackers. For the condition of changing controldisplay dynamics, one of the three measures of system performance showed less variation and less variation and less decrement for the proficient than for the poor trackers. Conventional tracking practice did not improve performance as measured by the adaptation and economy of effort criteria.

Book Summary:

In this educational yet entertaining text, Jeff Koonce draws on his 44 years of pilot experience and 31 years as a professor of psychology and human factors engineering in addressing the questions of how to apply sound human factors principles to the training of pilots and to one's personal flying. The author discusses principles of human factors, and how they can be utilized in pilot training and evaluation. With a conversational tone, he also relates anecdotes, jokes, and truisms collected during his time as a flight instructor. He takes a positive approach to the subject, focusing on safety and good practice rather than on accidents. While problem areas are acknowledged, and the book points out how certain problems may result in mishaps, the author avoids focusing on individual accidents. Human Factors in the Training of Pilots is a must for pilots wanting to make a systematic study of the human factors issues behind safe flying, and for instructors or serious students needing an authoritative text.
