Aviation is an industry wherein continuously evolving concepts and theories call for a proactive approach to managing the human-machine interface. Flying modern state-of-the-art aircraft, one doesn’t need just training and education in how to operate the aircraft systems but also an environment that ensures emotional stability and inner peace for the pilots. The book is aimed at highlighting some of the cultural issues, typical to South Asia, that create a high-power distance in the simulator training and the cockpit. Applicable remedial measures have been suggested for improving the environment in which we train and fly. The ultimate goal for all of us who relate to aviation in any manner remains to enhance flight safety and achieve a near-zero accident rate in the Aviation Industry.
