Abstract : All aviation systems of practical interest include both men and machines, and aviation psychology is the scientific study of human behavior in the operation of aviation systems. The enhancement of human effectiveness in flight operations involves the complementary processes of behavioral engineering and the selection and training of personnel. Behavioral engineering refers to the intentional effort to design equipment, organize system elements, and develop operational procedures to maximize system performance while minimizing the need to select and train personnel. Selection and training of flight crews and controllers maximize system performance within limits inherent to the system as designed. Specific research topics are reviewed. (Modified author abstract)
