Martins, Ana P. G.; Köbrich, Moritz V.; Carstengerdes, Nils; Biella, Marcus – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2023
The objective of the present study was to examine if the Outcome Bias also occurs in pilots flying under instrument flight rules (IFR). In a scenario-based survey, 60 pilots evaluated weather-related decisions made by hypothetical pilots. Participants rated the decisions as better, less risky, and regarded the probability that they would have made…

Yves Nievergelt – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2024
On 24 June 1994 at Fairchild Air Force Base, during practice for an air show, a low-flying B-52H aircraft banked its wings vertically and crashed. Emphasizing the activity of modeling drag and gravity, these notes examine the possibility of recovery with several models. First, with algebra, historical data lead to a model where in a free fall near…

Ilona Skackauskiene; Virginija Leonaviciute; Agne Sakalauske – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2024
Aviation is one of the most severely affected global industries by the COVID-19 pandemic, including passenger traffic, airport workforce, and operational processes: the total number of seats offered by airlines in 2020 decreased by about 50%, the number of passengers fell by about 60%, and this resulted in an estimated 371 billion USD loss in 2020…

Corman, Richard Justin – ProQuest LLC, 2023
The United States (US) airline industry is currently experiencing a pilot shortage that could quadruple between the years 2022-2025 (Baldwin, 2022). Although there is not a single cause for this pilot shortage, one of the reasons is the high cost of entry into the industry(Silk, 2019). For aspiring pilots to enter the aviation and/or airline…

Neufeld, Michael J. – Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, 2022
The Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum (NASM) remains one of the world's most visited museums precisely because it embodies the "romance of technological progress." From its origins in the US National Museum of the early twentieth century to the opening of its first dedicated building in 1976 and beyond, visitors…

Schmidt, Anthony – International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, 2022
Purpose: Numerous higher education institutions have created policies that aim to reduce their carbon footprints. Most policies focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions related to energy production and consumption. One area that has received less attention has been greenhouse gas emissions from university air travel. The purpose of this paper is…

Kendall, Chadwin T.; Yates, R. Rhett C. – Research in Higher Education Journal, 2023
The air transportation industry was experiencing massive growth across the globe before the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, future projections from major forecasting indicators, such as the Boeing Global Forecast and Airbus Market Forecast, predicted a greater than 4% average yearly growth rate over the next twenty years. The Federal Aviation…

Wiggins, Mark W.; Yuris, Nadya; Molesworth, Brett R. C. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2022
The aim of this study was to test, amongst less experienced pilots, the relationship between the recency of flight experience and performance during a critical in-flight event. It was hypothesised that, in response to an engine failure, recent flight experience would be associated with a superior level of aircraft control, decreased cognitive…

King, M.; Lenser, S.; Rogers, D.; Carnahan, H. – International Journal of Training Research, 2022
Virtual reality (VR) simulation training for helicopter search and rescues (SAR) hoist operators is very uncommon in comparison to the availability of pilot simulation training. SAR hoist operators control winch systems for hoisting objects or people during helicopter flight. Using a rear crew helicopter VR training simulator we sought to quantify…
