Overview

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.
