Book Description

As plane flew sooner; larger; and farther within the early days of flight; pilots had been uncovered as inefficient; weak; and harmful. They asphyxiated or received the bends at excessive altitudes; they spiraled to the bottom after encountering clouds or fog; they fainted throughout excessive-G maneuvers Their capability to commit deadly errors appeared boundless. The Problem with Pilots; (PDF) tells the story of how; within the years between the world wars; engineers and physicians sought new methods to deal with these difficulties and bridge the broadening hole between human and machine efficiency.

An ex-Air Force pilot; Timothy P. Schultz digs into archival sources to know the evolution of the pilot–plane relationship. As aviation expertise progressed and fans seemed for tactics to advance its navy makes use of; pilots surrendered fingers-on management to classy instrument-based mostly management. By the early Nineteen Forties; pilots had been generally ejected from plane to be able to enhance the potential of airpower—a phenomenon far more prevalent in right this moment’s period of excessive-tech (and sometimes unmanned) plane.

Linking historic developments to fashionable flight; this research presents an authentic view of how engineers and scientists introduced collectively medical; technological; and human components to remodel the pilot’s position. The Problem with Pilots does away with the phantasm of pilot supremacy and yields new perceptions into our ever-altering affiliation with clever machines.


“This ebook does what any good history ebook should do ? present new ideas; new ways of looking at longstanding ideas; and it pushes its field (aviation history) in new directions; opening new gates for further study and producing interesting new questions. Highly recommended.” — GoodReads

What Schultz has done; widely; yet engagingly; is to tell the stories behind key milestones in a way that brings them to life. He shines a light on the human element; specially the humanity behind the legends of Air Force history; while at the same time placing them in the larger historical context visible now with the benefit of hindsight. It is a significant contribution to the public discourse around the future of flight; the future of the US Air Force and the future of military aviation. The Problem With Pilots is a pleasing read and will be of wide interest to all USAF leaders of today and tomorrow ? aspiring civilian and military pilots; flight surgeons; aeronautical engineers; and aviation historians.” — Lt Col Kari Thyne; PhD; USAF; Retired Air University
