NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY BOARD SAFETY STUDY: A REVIEW OF FLIGHTCREW-INVOLVED, MAJOR ACCIDENTS OF U.S. AIR CARRIERS, 1978 THROUGH 1990
Recognizing that deficiencies in various aspects of the aviation system may underlie the errors made by flightcrews, the Safety Board conducted this study to learn more about flightcrew performance by evaluating the characteristics of the operating environments, the flightcrews, and errors made in major accidents of U.S. air carriers between 1978 and 1990 in which the flightcrew was cited by the Board. It also describes the methodology of the study and explains the measures of operational context, flightcrew characteristics, and errors in flightcrew performance; the broad, operational context within which flightcrew-involved accidents occurred; the characteristics of the flightcrews; specific errors made by the flightcrews and their association with the circumstances of the accidents and characteristics of the flightcrews; and the Safety Board's findings and safety recommendations made as a result of the study.
