Description The Airline Training Pilot de Tony Smallwood:
A revised edition reflecting the changes which have taken place within the international airline training environment. Particular emphasis is placed on human factors, crew resource management, crew and organizational culture, error management and advanced qualification procedures. It also acknowledges that there is some way to go yet, in reducing the so-called "pilot error" incidents and accidents and offers insights and links to information sources, aimed at provoking further thought and argument on all aspects of airline training and management. Aimed at an international airline pilot readership, the book explains in simple, straightforward detail, the method and means of delivering effective airline pilot training. By highlighting the techniques and challenges of preparing the next generation of skilled and safety conscious pilots, it is not only airline trainers who should find the content useful, but any pilot or potential pilot embarking on a professional airline career.
