Sample text

Some reports give 'unacceptable flight deck behaviour' as the main problem, and examples given of such behaviour are: inefficiency, passivity, laziness, incompetence, boredom, not monitoring other persons' actions, and absences from the flight deck.

For copilots, the difficult personality is the captain with an abrasive and intransigent personality and an autocratic style of leadership.

They have the same number of senses (ten in all), comprising: visual (sight), auditory (hearing), tactile (touch), kinesthetic (muscle sense), balance, olfactory (smell), taste, cold, heat, and pain. The first five are of critical importance in flying and are given great attention in the selection and training of pilots. Normal (1 g) flight in visual flight conditions places only small demands on pilots and their senses, but abnormal flight producing high g forces in instrument flight conditions can produce in-flight spatial disorientation.
