Abstract:

The multifaceted problem of aircraft accidents has repeatedly been addressed by the Aerospace Medical Panel which is concered with the role played by human factors. In this follow-up study provided by the eleven papers presented at the Paris Meeting, November 1978, the problem still appears to be a matter of urgent concern, compounded by the advent of high performance aircraft and an era of economic stringency. Different approaches to the problem, ranging from conceptual models to extensive lists of specific factors, are offered for educational use, investigation techniques, information gathering and dissemination, with the ultimate goals of improving aircraft accident prevention.
