about this item

This study analyzes pilots’ cognitive processing of dangerous, unexpected events during flight and identifies the human behaviors displayed by all pilots under stressful situations, particularly tunnel attention phenomenon. In doing so, it throws new light on human operational mechanisms and limitations which until now have only been taken into account implicitly in the study of human errors, human factors and their consequences. Using a kinematic template and mental models, five case studies break down real-life crises into a temporal sequence of pilot tasks, perceptions, and cognitive actions.
