Editorial Reviews


"This book could not be more timely as aviation becomes increasingly international and, with it, the need for professionals to understand cultural forces and how they can affect aviation safety. Jing and Batteau provide superb insights into eastern and western cultural influences, and how Confucian perspectives differ from those of the West. This book would be a welcome addition to anyone with an interest in cultural differences, aviation safety, and human factors."

―Barry Strauch, Strauch Associates, LLC, USA

"In The Dragon in the Cockpit, Jing and Batteau examine the most important differences between the Chinese and Western cultures and value systems in flight operation, especially since China is becoming one of the most prominent forces in commercial aviation. Can such vastly different perspectives be overcome by rigorous training, strong management, professionalism, and a strong cooperative culture? Jing and Batteau give you their insights in this magnificent book!"

―Kay Yong, Chairman (retired), Aviation Safety Council, Taiwan, ROC
