Voss. “To highlight one of the greatest achievements of the EAC during Hans’ chairmanship, the Foundation is immensely proud of the Operator’s Guide to Human Factors in Aviation. This body of work, available to all at EUROCONTROL’s Skybrary, is a first rate collection of information that will help to improve aviation safety worldwide.”
