    DescriptionThis cohesive work on glass cockpit equipment focuses on limiting in-flight issues and advancing the safe operation of highly automated aircraft. Automation Airmanship: Nine Principles for Operating Glass Cockpit Aircraft is targeted to professional pilots who need to make the move from analog to digital flight decks, known as glass cockpits. This practical guide formalizes informal knowledge--the wisdom passed from an expert pilot to a trainee to form a set of habits and routines to advance safety in automated aviation. You will learn best practices for the safe operation of glass cockpit, highly automated aircraft. The principles cover planning, briefing, communicating, and monitoring in pre-, in-, and post-flight stages, as well as human factors, workload management, and human-computer interface. Drawing on real-life examples and reports, the authors present a general how-to, which can be tailored to fit different models of equipment. Though it is written primarily for professional pilots with existing in-flight experience, it is applicable for beginner pilots learning to fly with automated flight decks. Includes principles and practices for pre-, in-, and post-flight operations Guidelines based on in-flight experience and expert knowledge Uses real-world accident investigations to illustrate principles Discusses how to avoid errors, and how to resolve them when issues arise Explains the fundamentals of automated flight deck architecture
