This book was written for a purpose planned by the author over the last twenty years and for which there has been and is a very real need. It should be in the library of all physicians interested in aviation medicine as well as in the library of air line executives, especially those in the engineering and planning department, and at any school, such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the California Institute of Technology, where aeronautical engineering is taught.
The accomplished aims of the author are to present factual information on all aspects of air transport design influencing those who operate the planes or travel by air, to furnish whatever interpretative background is necessary to show how a given physical variable creates a human problem and to offer recommendations or possible solutions concerning the human factors in air transport design. A summary is presented at the end of
Human Factors in Air Transport Design. JAMA. 1947;134(16):1444. doi:10.1001/jama.1947.02880330166026
