Normalization of Deviance: A Threat to Aviation Safety (Paperback)
The things that airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and the FAA are
not sharing with the public. This book is the result of the author's
doctoral research--Safety Culture, Training, Understanding, Aviation
Passion: The Impact on Manual Flight and Operational Performance.
While the intent of the research was to learn what predicted manual
flight, what was learned may have predicted and, if heeded, prevented
the Lion Air Flight 602, 2018 crash, Ethiopian Flight 302, 2019
crash, and Atlas Air Flight 3591, 2019 crash. What was learned
could also have prevented the Air France Flight 447 crash. We now
have the data that proves we can't simply blame the pilot.
There is never one reason an accident occurs, but a chain
of events. If you travel, fly, or touch aviation in any aspect, you
have every reason to read this book. If you wish to read the actual
dissertation, it may be found at https: //petittaviationresearch.com.
