From RAF Regiment Gunner to Hercules Co-pilot, this book covers in a series of short anecdotes the journey from wannabe pilot through several setbacks to eventually hunting drug smugglers in Belize, low level parachute drops at night, relief flights into Bosnia and taking Special Forces to the first Gulf War; all whilst cycling the length of Mexico to meet the Tarahumaran Indians and climb its highest volcano. This should interest anyone who is tired of 'gung ho' recollections involving heroic deeds; this is the reality of life in the cockpit with all its mistakes, embarrassing moments and sudden tragedy, plus the odd instance of daring.

This experiment investigated two major hypothesis generated by the Natural Pilot Model for Flight Proficiency Evaluation. These specify that human adaptability and economy of effort as understood in the context of servo- mechanism theory are important parameters of flying proficiency, and serve to differentiate proficient (''natural'') from poor (''mechanical'') operators. Adaptability was studied by systematically varying the controlled-element dynamics (control-display relationships); economy of effort, by varying the percent of time during which information was displayed (target intermittency). For all experimental conditions, the proficient trackers retained superiority over the poor ones. For intermittency conditions, performance decrement was the same for proficient and poor trackers. For the condition of changing controldisplay dynamics, one of the three measures of system performance showed less variation and less variation and less decrement for the proficient than for the poor trackers. Conventional tracking practice did not improve performance as measured by the adaptation and economy of effort criteria.
