The council was recently contacted by Mr. Hussain Alhallaf, a Ph.D. candidate at Florida Institute of Technology's doctoral program in Aviation Sciences in the College of Aeronautics. Mr. Alhallaf is examining aviation professionalism and is seeking assistance from industry members through completion of an online questionnaire. Mr. Alhallaf's research is the first to empirically study perspectives on professionalism and personal development in aviation.
Why does it matter? Mr. Alhallaf has seen first-hand the dangers of inattention in the cockpit (or, by extension, on the maintenance line): a friend barely walked away after failing to recover from a low-altitude stall. As a result, Mr. Alhallaf has chosen to dedicate his own professional career to studying the personal factors that ensure safety in the air. This research will be a seminal part of that work and the participation of the AMTS community is vital to its success.
To participate, you may access the online survey via the following link (or by pasting the address into your browser): http://questionpro.com/t/ALRnkZSa9Y. The questionnaire will take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
In addition to completing the survey, aviation professionals are encouraged to share it with contacts and colleagues. For more information, please contact Mr. Alhallaf directly via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (386) 847-7671.
Stay tuned for updates on everything ATEC members need to know as well as ways that you can help the council and the AMTS community.
