If you're flying across the Atlantic in a giant Boeing or Airbus, you'll be grateful that somebody invented and developed sophisticated and complex flight simulators so the pilots have a pretty good idea how to deal with any situation which may arise in one of those monsters as they guide them through the skies and, perhaps more importantly, get them back onto an airport runway with all components, crew and passengers in one piece.

Practical implications

Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
