Areas of Expertise
- Dr. Cline’s research emphasizes human factors in aviation, specifically the intersection of aviation and gender. His present research explores how family life issues influence the decision to either pursue a career in aviation, or remain in the field after becoming a commercial pilot. His previous research dealt with the effect of mentoring on female Airline Transport pilots (ATP) and the go/no go decision in helicopter EMS. Dr. Cline is also heavily involved in the burgeoning field of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). He believes these systems will not only change aviation, but also society.
