Abstract : Aircraft mishap investigation can be extremely difficult, time consuming, stressful, but also rewarding when we recognize that the contributions we make will improve aviation safety. A thorough mishap investigation is absolutely necessary to determine the cascading events causal to a mishap and recommending corrective actions to prevent recurrence. This edition of the Pocket Reference introduces a new tool in accident investigation, the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System (HFACS). HFACS provides the accident investigator with a proven template that aids in organizing the investigation while providing a detailed analysis of human error for post-hoc mishap data analysis, revealing previously unidentified trends and hazards.
