This document contains five research papers devoted to aviation education and training. The first paper, "An Examination of the U.S. Airline Policy Regarding Child Restraint Systems" (Larry Carstenson, Donald Sluti, and Jacqueline Luedtke), examines communication of airline policy from airline management to airline personnel to the traveling public. Methods of training pilots in Crew Resource Management (CRM) are examined in "Advanced Qualification Training: A Study of Implementation of CRM into Airline Training" (Roger C. Matteson). "The Theory of Functionalism and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO): An Analytical Assessment after the First Fifty Years" (Isaac Richmond Nettey) explores whether functionalist predictions will ever be validated by a transfer of allegiance from nation states to the ICAO. The effectiveness of computer technology in aviation meteorology classrooms was examined in a study reported in "Student Performance in a Technology-Enhanced Aviation Meteorology Course" (Michael R. Witiw, Kathleen Kelly-Benjamin). "Educational Requirements for a Career in Airline Management: An Industry Perspective" (Robert W. Kaps, Jose R. Ruiz) reports on a survey in which presidents of 30 of the top U.S. airlines were asked about the educational preparation needed by students seeking careers. All papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
