A Historical Study of the Ergonomic Considerations in Aircraft

About the Scholar: Guankai Zhai grew up in China and attended Jining Confucius International School in Jining and YK Pao School in Shanghai, China.

The Research:

Beginning with the great increase in commercial aviation following World War II, the interaction of cockpit crew members with one another and their increasingly automated aviation systems began to be studied with the goal of preventing accidents. In this paper, Pioneer scholar Guankai traces the history of both the development of cockpit instruments and the attempts to facilitate pilot/crew/instrument interactions through Cockpit Resource Management (CRM) Training Programs. Guankai analyzes six stages of CRM training development from 1981 through the beginning of the 21st century, and concludes that similar kinds of training could benefit such increasingly automated fields as medical surgery.

Project Title

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
