The Limits of Expertise: Rethinking Pilot Error and the Causes of Airline Accidents

1st Edition

R. Key Dismukes, Benjamin A. Berman, Loukia Loukopoulos
January 12, 2007

Why would highly skilled, well-trained pilots make errors that lead to accidents when they had safely completed many thousands of previous flights? The majority of all aviation accidents are attributed primarily to human error, but this is often misinterpreted as evidence of lack of skill,...
