By classifying people and errors we are more able to identify them. Regardless of how we classify them, design-induced, operator-induced, random, systematic, sporadic, reversible and irreversible errors are the challenge of meeting human error. Perhaps we may not have to meet them at all. One possible way to handle the error is to take the task away from man altogether and give it to the machine or the computer. That's right we should eliminate all human error but that of programming and controlling the machine. Machines that monitor machines are the wave of the future! Not really, I believe that we will never be able to get rid of the human aspect of flight simply because of the fact that humans can make decisions and come up with theories in critical situations that computers may never be able to achieve. The loss of jobs it would mean for the aviation industry alone is enough reason to halt the idea before it is presented.
So is flying really safe or not? Although there are a lot of examples of flight disasters caused by human error and faulty equipment each year, there has been an eighty percent decline in the number of fatal airplane accidents since the 1960s (Shrontz 40). Getting to some places throughout the world depend solely on air travel; therefore, people must trust their lives to flight crews, safety inspectors, and maintenance crews and believe that all problems are being addressed and corrected. We hope they do so in a most proficient manner and save that which we cherish the most... Human Life.
