📒A Soldier In The Cockpit ✍ Ron Pottinger
✏A Soldier in the Cockpit Book Summary : In October 1939, barely a month after World War II erupted in Europe, Ron Pottinger was conscripted into the British Army as a rifleman in the Royal Fusiliers. A year later, amidst pilot shortages due to losses during the Battle of Britain, he transferred to the Royal Air Force, where he began flying the 7.5 ton Hawker Typhoon fighter. He flew dozens of dangerous ground-attack missions over occupied Europe through bad weather, heavy flak, and enemy fighters before being shot down in early 1945 and ending the war in a German prisoner of war camp. Ron Pottinger served for six years during World War II, most of it flying combat missions in the Royal Air Force. He lives in England.
📒Coping With Computers In The Cockpit ✍ Sidney Dekker
✏Coping with Computers in the Cockpit Book Summary : First published in 1999, this volume examined how increasing cockpit automation in commercial fleets across the world has had a profound impact on the cognitive work that is carried out on the flight deck. Pilots have largely been transformed into supervisory controllers, managing a suite of human and automated resources. Operational and training requirements have changed, and the potential for human error and system breakdown has shifted. This compelling book critically examines how airlines, regulators, educators and manufacturers cope with these and other consequences of advanced aircraft automation.

📒Cockpit And Cabin Crew Coordination ✍ Kim M. Cardosi
✏Cockpit and Cabin Crew Coordination Book Summary : Cockpit and cabin crew coordination is crucial not only in emergencies, but also during normal operations. The purposes of this study were to determine the status of crew coordination in the industry and to identify the implications for flight safety. This examination of crew coordination included: an examination of accidents and incidents in which cockpit and cabin crew coordination was a factor, an analysis of the results of surveys of pilot and flight attendant safety representatives, a survey of manuals and training programs for flight attendants and pilots, interviews with training administrators from seven Part 121 carriers, and interviews with Principal Operations Inspectors and their managers. Problem areas identified in this study included: inadequate crew communication in emergencies, confusion over the sterile cockpit (FAR 121.542) concept, inadequate instruction on the duties of the other crew in training, failure to properly secure the cabin for takeoff and landing, and inadequate support for and staffing of the FAA inspector workforce. Recommendations for improving the status of cockpit and cabin crew coordination include changes in training and operational procedures. Keywords: Crew coordination, Emergency procedures, Air safety, Flight training, Flight attendant training.
