Principles and Practice of Aviation Psychology

Share/Save/Bookmark Image


I found the book immensely thought provoking and utterly engaging....This outstanding book deserves a place, not on the bookshelf, but open on the desk of any student or professional working in the field of aviation or engineering psychology.

It is a highly useful book for those who wish for a comprehensive overview of a complex topic. It could also serve as a graduate text for aviation psychologists and engineers and as a practical guide for aviation professionals...who need practical guidance when solving aviation problems.

—Ergonomics in Design

In the middle of the last century, the authors of the first ergonomics textbook (Chapanis, Garner, & Morgan, 1949) were wrestling with many aspects of a new field ... At the beginning of a new century, Tsang and Vidulich offer an edited volume of 14 chapters presenting the tough problems and the principles relevant to solving them.

Book Description
Principles and Practice of Aviation Psychology is an important addition to the literature in aviation psychology. Covering the history of aviation to the actual pilot actions and tasks today, the editors have brought together a wonderful set of contributors who are leaders in this field.

The text presents psychological principles and research pertinent to the interface between a pilot and the ~censored~. Understanding the cognitive demands and the capabilities and limitations of the pilot has important implications on selection and training of pilots and display/control designs in the ~censored~. Emphasis is placed on the scientific methods of achieving this understanding together with the view that theories and principles of human behavior would have much to learn from practical problems and applied studies.
