Collegiate Aviation Review, v18 n1 Oct 2000
This issue contains seven papers. "University Aviation Education: An Integrated Model" (Merrill R. Karp) addresses potential educational enhancements through the implementation of an integrated aviation learning model, the Aviation Education Reinforcement Option. "The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA): A Tombstone Agency? Putting the Nickname to the Test" (Rebecca K. Lutte, Brent D. Bowen) investigates FAA activity before and after six catastrophic airline accidents to examine the FAA's alleged reactive policy-setting reputation. "The Relationship of Document and Quantitative Literacy with Learning Styles and Selected Personal Variables for Aviation University Students" (Royce Ann Martin) indicates that year in school and grade point average were significant predictors of literacy scores on the Aviation Documents Delineator, while learning style and the student's program of study were not. "Memory Strategies for the Pilot" (Gary J. Northam) considers some concepts for understanding the processes involved when important tasks are forgotten and/or certain "actions-not-as-planned" are executed. Suggestions for the practical enhancements of memory are offered. "A Followup Survey of 1985-96 Graduates of the Aviation Management Program Bachelor of Science Degree at Southern Illinois University Carbondale" (Jose R. Ruiz et al.) reports, among other things, that 86 percent indicated the degree was an asset that aided them in achieving their occupational and/or life goals. "Collision Avoidance at Nontowered Airports" (Teresa Ann Sloan) provides a review of the regulations, advisories, and various articles on traffic patterns of non-towered airports. "Attracting Women to Aviation Careers: What Recent Studies Reveal" (Mary Ann Turney) presents a literature review relevant to the question of why the numbers of women choosing careers in aviation have not increased in the past two decades, and why even those who demonstrate an initial interest in the field eventually look for career satisfaction in other fields. Each paper contains references. (YLB)
