Pride in Professionalism – Research Study Needs Input

The association 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 repair station 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 halhallaf2014@my.fit.edu or by phone at (386) 847-7671.

By supporting academic research and donating time and input to the institutions that train the next generation of aviation professionals, ARSA is active in ensuring the future safety of the flying public. Get involved with us.
