The purpose of this study is to reduce the aviation accidents and incidents induced by flight crew errors. A flight crew errors analysis and classification system is developed preliminary. In combination with aviation flight accidents exploration, and interviews with pilots, the human error modes which will occur in the flight task are identified. A quantitative method to assess flight crew errors is established on Technique For Human Error Rate Prediction (THERP). In a case study, the takeoff
