Intelligent "Virtual Co-Pilot" by S.B. Miller
Mr. Miller's research describes the benefit from a next generation evolution to allow
autonomous aircraft operation.

Barriers to Effective Communication: Implications for the Cockpit by Robert Baron
A combination of case examples,
empirical research, and studies of literature, create an overview of the effects of
deficient communications processes in the aviation domain.
╩Why are Routine Flight Operations Killing Pilots and their Passengers? by Robert Baron
operations present pilots with a myriad of latent threats. Three accident
scenarios are presented that exemplify how a routine flight operation can end in
Flight Management Systems for Singles and Light Twins by Stephen B. Miller
Flight Management Systems (FMS), while normally found only on larger
aircraft (i.e., bizjets and up), have a potentially unique application for
singles/light twins, largely due to the availability of small "embedded
Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) for GPS accuracy improvement
"This stands for "Wide Area Augmentation System".
WAAS is really the same thing as DGPS except it uses new version of satellites
instead of a ground station. By Chris Claborne
Aircraft Propellers and Related Systems
"Did you know that the Wright brothers considered the development of the airstream
propeller to be one of their greatest challanges?" Lecture notes for a course

RAM is a new concept for the solution of the new kinematics group of machines with the
simple rotary movement of all the mobile parts. The solution is based on the kinematics
Instrument Scanning and Situational Awareness
CHATTS, TIME-OUT, INTEGRITY, and TURN combine to form a fluid
mnemonic set that leads a pilot through a comprehensive instrument
scan and awareness check while flying in instrument meteorological
Accoustic Cavitation As A Souce Of Ignition
And Its Possible Relevance To TWA Flight 800
Acoustic cavitation at or near the surface of liquid fuel that is
in contact with an air and fuel vapor mixture could cause ignition of
the air fuel vapor.
Wind Effects on V Speeds by John T. Lowry, Ph.D
In aircraft performance questions we generally focus on air speed, our airplane's movement with
respect to the air mass, but there are reasons for paying attention to our airplane's progress over
the earth. [continue]
Runway Incursions: Where Are We? by Robert Baron
When I was at Milan Italy's Linate Airport in the winter of last year I had a real bad feeling about
what I saw (or didn't see). If you have ever flown in European airspace in the winter, you have found a whole new
appreciation for IFR procedures, ATC clearances, and holding (yes, holding!). With the reported weather at Linate Airport right at minimums, it was just
another typical morning in the area.[continue]
Crm From The Instructor/Facilitator Viewpoint by Robert Baron
In my years of being a flight, ground, and simulator instructor in high performance jets, I have had the pleasure of observing a plethora of behaviors in the area of Crew Resource Management.
Additionally, as a CRM facilitator, I sometimes have access to the stories and confessions that some pilots are willing to share in a casual, relaxed setting.
That said, I wanted to share some observations and recommendations for any person making an attempt to enhance their CRM skills. [continue]
