Increased demand for efficient travel has resulted in more airplanes, more flights and, concurrently, increased public apprehension concerning airline travel safety. This volume primarily addresses air piracy, deregulation, and metal fatigue, the three major targets of airline safety efforts on major airlines worldwide from 1960 to the present. After a lengthy listing of acronyms common to the industry, the text focuses on entries from periodicals, books, government publications, dissertations, and conference reports, selected for their relevance and categorized under topics which cover airports and airport personnel, weather, aircraft, collision avoidance, emergencies, and security. Each selection is a thoroughly documented and succinct summary, resulting in a manual which can provide airline, legal, medical, and security personnel, as well as the travelling public, with both an overview of available information on airline safety and a reference guide to further investigation of this important topic. Author and subject indexes complete the work.
