Author Geoffrey R. McIntyre's New Book 'Gamers Going Airborne: Two Travel Events in Two Decades' is an Eye-Opening Discussion of Significant Aviation Incidents

Recent release "Gamers Going Airborne: Two Travel Events in Two Decades" from Page Publishing author Geoffrey R. McIntyre, Ph.D. is a sobering thesis by a video gamer's terrifying deja vu, historical joyride in 2018, in the skies over Seattle/Tacoma, Washington and other dangerous and tragic aviation incidents.

​​Geoffrey R. McIntyre, Ph.D., a former senior program analyst with the Flight Standards International Office of the Federal Aviation Administration, the author of a textbook on air traffic safety, and member of the International System Safety Society who has taught at the graduate level, has completed his new book “Gamers Going Airborne: Two Travel Events in Two Decades”: a thought-provoking essay reviewing over four decades of selected worldwide commercial air travel events and accidents.

Dr. McIntyre writes, “Whenever ‘rare’ and ‘preventable’ tragic air travel events involving aircraft certified ‘safe to fly’ occur, pending formal accident investigation reports, mainstream media’s experts rightly assure that U.S. domestic travel has a very low accident rate. This essay proposes that the exclusion of manufacturing and operational data from the safety narrative presents challenges to understanding how present and future risk develops. For example, that ‘data-driven’ low accident rate narrative excludes the staggering rise in near midair collisions and other ignored data, with potentially outsized consequences. This essay documented the specter of creeping accident recidivism; and transformational fleet groundings, that for the third time in four decades have questioned the behavior of the regulated and the regulator to determine how best to protect travelers. " 

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Geoffrey R. McIntyre, Ph.D.’s engrossing book is an unsettling expose of the aviation industry both in the United States and around the world.
