Airmanship – a qualitative approach

    Vegard Nergård Affiliation


The purpose of this study was to investigate how pilots themselves characterize a good pilot and airmanship, and how safety is created by the practice of knowledge. The purpose of this study was to get the insiders’ understanding of the concept of airmanship. Results indicate that the formulation of the concept of airmanship is complex, and it is first and foremost comprised of the knowledge about flying an aircraft. Moreover, the relationship between practical knowledge and an individual applying this knowledge is embedded in the concept of airmanship.
