|Dangers of Automation in Airliners (Air World)|
|Friday, 11 December 2020|
Subtitled "Accidents Waiting to Happen", this book explores the idea that automation in aviation can be a lifesaver, expertly guiding a plane and its passengers through stormy weather to a safe landing. Or it can be a murderer, crashing an aircraft and killing all on board in the mistaken belief that it is doing the right thing. Jack Hersch looks in depth at a number of aviation accidents and explores why they happened.
Author: Jack Hersch
The book looks at the shortcomings in automation and why pilots might overlook warnings or ignore cockpit alarms, or why automation fails to alert aircrews of what they crucially need to know while fighting to save their planes and their passengers.
