The second hard-copy annual edition of CASA’s respected and award-winning Flight Safety Australia online magazine is now available.
Coming in at 168 pages and just under one kilo on high-quality paper stock, the 2016 Collectors’ Edition is a bumper edition of more than 50 stories published online in 2016. Among its many topics are human factors, flight operations, training, maintenance and aviation medicine. Specific issues covered include the latest research on the risks of collision between manned aircraft and drones, the importance of human-machine interface design and how medicine uses a combination of theatrical and technical simulation to develop interpersonal skills in surgical teams.
The close calls section—written by pilots who share their experiences in the name of safety—covers incidents ranging from the terrifying to the merely troubling, in aircraft as diverse as warbirds, gliders, and business jets.
If you’re quick, it will make an ideal Christmas present for anyone you know with a bent towards aviation safety. It would also be a valuable addition to any crew room or flying club.
