Human Factors im Cockpit: Praxis sicheren Handelns für by Joachim Scheiderer, Hans-Joachim Ebermann

By Joachim Scheiderer, Hans-Joachim Ebermann

Die Hauptaufgabe eines Verkehrspiloten ist es, sein Flugzeug sicher von A nach B zu bringen. Dieses auch ökonomisch und komfortabel zu machen, steht erst an zweiter Stelle. Das Wissen von Verkehrspiloten über eine optimale Unfallprävention und die Vermeidung „menschlichen Versagens“ ist trotz jahrelanger Bemühungen immer noch verbesserungsfähig. Piloten sollten mehr darüber wissen, wann und unter welchen Umständen Unfälle passieren und wie sie sich sinnvoll präventiv vermeiden lassen. Dies wird im Buch ausführlich dargelegt. Zur Unfallprävention gehört unbedingt das sicherheitsrelevante Verhalten, insbesondere das team Ressource administration (CRM). Dies möchte die Vereinigung Cockpit unterstützen, indem im Buch zunächst die Inhalte des CRM möglichst vollständig definiert werden und anschließend aufgezeigt wird, wie diese Inhalte von der Theorieschulung über die notwendigen Seminare in das Cockpit übertragen werden können.
