David'd book Flying Fast Jets: Human Factors and Performance Limitations, was published this month by Ashgate in the UK. The book provides a detailed overview of the human factors and performance limitations associated with flying fast jets. It has a strong military focus, dealing with pilots of fighter aircraft, attack aircraft and lead-in fighter trainer aircraft that are traditionally only single or dual pilot operations. Examining the human performance issues associated with the technological advances made in fast jets such as increased manoeuvrability.

Well done David on your dual achievements.
