Airbus Human Factors Award presented to Christopher Wickens

Christopher Wickens, a retired psychology professor and head of the Aviation Research laboratory at the University of Illinois, USA, received this year’s Flight Safety Foundation/Airbus Human Factors Award for his groundbreaking research in human factors in aviation. The award was given by John Lauber, Airbus’ chief product safety officer, during the European conference of the Flight Safety Foundation in Warsaw.



Dr Wickens’s research has focused on models of human interaction with complex systems, particularly in aerospace, and on the role of human perception, attention and cognition in designing display interfaces for those systems.



Sponsored by Airbus, the award was instituted in 1999 to recognise an individual, group or organisation that has made an outstanding contribution in human factors to improve aviation safety. It is administered by the Flight Safety Foundation, an international organisation dedicated to the continuous improvement of aviation safety.
