Ragan said “while it is difficult to determine the cause of aviation accidents without examining an extensive amount of data, it is known that the fatality rate for professional aviators is much higher than the all-occupations fatality rate.” That high fatality rate, Ragan said, is less frequently due to mechanical failure, and more frequently due to pilot error. Pilot error is the central focus of Lag: A Look at Circadian Desynchronization.
The following is a quote from Lag: A Look at Circadian Desynchronization:
“Though age and gender have been identified as variables that could have an effect on how pilots cope with occupational stress, the areas of interest in this book are sector length and, separately, pilot fatigue prevention training.”
Lag: A Look at Circadian Desynchronization was published in 2007 by Lulu Enterprises, and is available from in the United States from Lulu.com, Target.com, Amazon.com, Aircraft Technical Books, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, and other popular booksellers online. Lag: A Look at Circadian Desynchronization makes a great Christmas gift for anyone interested in science, travel, aviation, medicine, or sports!
