Cockpit Resource Management
Cockpit Resource Management (CRM) has gained increased attention from the airline industry in recent years due to the growing number of accidents and near misses in airline traffic. This book is the first comprehensive work on CRM and is authored by the first generation of CRM experts. "Cockpit Resource Management" is a far-reaching discussion of crew coordination, communication, and resources both within and outside the cockpit. The book will be a valuable resource in commercial and military airline training curriculum, but also has a broader appeal to professionals in business interested in effective communication among interactive personnel.
