Fear of flying is a growing problem among both passengers and airline crews. Recent terrorist attacks have heightened the levels of anxiety and fear when boarding a plane. In this volume, one of Britain's leading aviation psychologists explores passenger behaviour when faced with anxiety towards flying, the mental health of pilots and the possible treatments for people suffering from fear of flying. Includes contributions from Brett Kahr.

In early stages of an aircraft design process, it is necessary to determine the minimum thrust or power requirement and rapidly select the appropriate propulsion, which involves a tight coupling between flight performance and missions' analyses, engine performance prediction and design optimisation. The first chapter of this book provides an overview of how to determine the minimum thrust or power requirements for jet and propeller driver transport aircraft. The second chapter examines the comprehensive modeling and design of production processes of aircraft assembly. The final chapter focuses on the computational modeling of the Be-200 and Be-103 amphibious aircraft models.
