RAeS Fatal Flaws Conference 26-27 November 2015
The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) Human Factors Group is staging a conference 26-27 November 2015 at Virgin Atlantic Airways at Crawley, near London Gatwick. The title is: Predicting the Fatal Flaws – Can we do things differently in aviation safety?. The organisers say:
Civil aviation safety performance itself poses a threat to future flight safety by creating complacency about current safety measures at a time of enormous underlying change in technology and threat profiles; and because it tempts operators to look for cost reductions.
