This document contains four papers on aviation education. The first paper, "Why Aren't We Teaching Aeronautical Decision Making?" (Richard J. Adams), reviews 15 years of aviation research into the causes of human performance errors in aviation and provides guidelines for designing the next generation of aeronautical decision-making materials. "Aviation Distance Learning: An Initial Case Study of Intent, Implementation, and Evaluation" (Henry R. Lehrer, Thomas J. Connolly) presents a statistical examination of the performance of 70 students in 3 different aviation classes (1 traditional classroom-based class and 2 distance learning classes) that demonstrated the effectiveness of distance learning as a form of aviation education. "A Comparison of Personality Characteristics between University Aviation Students and Airline Pilots" (Maureen Pettit, Joseph H. Dunlap) discusses a study that revealed significant differences between freshmen and junior students, male and female students, and students and line pilots. The paper "Airport Privatization: False Panacea?" (Lawrence J. Truitt, Michael Esler) describes the recent history of airport privatization, presents arguments for and against privatization, and assesses its prospects in the United States. (MN)
