Summary

When flying a human moves in an unusual three-dimensional space at high speed, while the human body is exposed to changes in pressure, temperature, lighting, noise, vibration, congestion and other factors, since it requires fast and accurate performance of complex tasks. Human errors under these conditions often lead to irreparable damage. Therefore, knowledge of the Human Factors and the necessary teaching of this course by acquiring of some aviation qualifications is an ICAO requirement.
