MEN AND SYSTEMS IN THE YEARS TO COME

Capt. Jean Hardouin

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: SUCH A TITLE can cover a very wide field; I shall therefore restrict myself to air navigation and particularly long range air navigation and leave open the question for philosophers or psychologists as far as the general matter is concerned. To deal then with men and navigational systems in the years to come is quite a hard job. I have not so much to fear systems reactions. As sophisticated as they are or will be, even a science fiction minded author is not yet in a position where he has to hide from a revengeful revolt of the “Systems”. But man is to be handled with care. I hope I shall hurt nobody. If I do, I beg for mercy since I only try to put forward some thoughts with sincerity and some experience in that field. I do not intend to go into details. I shall endeavour to mark some paths through which manufacturers, airlines, crews could walk for some years together.
