Summary

Human Factors play a decisive role in the design of aircrafts, which should take into account the physiological characteristics, needs and limits of the human body. Furthermore they have effect by their manufacturing and maintenance, air traffic control, preparation and training of staff and finally assessment and competency assessment of the machines and people. Here the critically affect the safety and efficiency of the air transport. Therefore, knowledge of the Human Factors and the need of teaching of this course by acquiring of some aviation qualifications is an ICAO requirement.
