Human Factors for Aviation – Basic Handbook
The Human Factors for Aviation book is designed to be a plain language introduction to human factors for pilots in the earlier stages of their flying careers.
The material is geared to pilots, but the principles apply to others in the aviation system.
This handbook also provides the background material for the Human Factors Advanced Handbook.
Human Factors for Aviation – Basic Handbook is one in a series of three handbooks designed by the Air Canada Human Factors Project Team for Transport Canada.
It is part of a project to develop a human factors training program for pilots and instructors.
The project was started in response to a requirement made by ICAO in November 1989, to make training in human factors a requirement for all air crew licences.
Students enrolled in our ground school courses have access to this book as part of their ground school. There is no Human Factors for Aviation PDF file, although we do provide our copies to students under copyright authorization from Transport Canada.
