The Operator’s Guide to Human Factors in Aviation (OGHFA)

It was founded and created by the Flight Safety Foundation European Advisory Committee. We will use this guide throughout the course in different activities. However, this guide and any other materials from SKYbrary are not to be purchased for this course.
