Summary

Aviation is a very risky career fields, ie. the little man or equipment failure can have direconsequences (of the great material or human casualties). During the development of aviation has long worked primarily on reducing the probability of failure of aviation technology, but forgot to reduce human failure, which currently represents about 75%. To understand the causes of human failure and options for its elimination is necessary to understand patterns of human performance through a comprehensive knowledge, a discipline called "Human factors" and its laws in the field of aviation.
