Benjamin Hari (Master of Science in Air Safety Management 2015) is an Airline Pilot on the Cathay Pacific Airways Airbus A330-300.
I am a former train driver and instructor at Swiss Federal Railways (SBB CFF FFS). I am now an Associate Member (AMRAeS) of the Royal Aeronautical Society, Associate Member of The Honourable Company of Air Pilots (former GAPAN) and Member of Flight Safety Foundation.
Why I am an Ambassador:
I am a passionate airline pilot at Cathay Pacific Airways and spent several years in commercial railway and air transport industry as a train driver and flight crew member. Those valuable professional experiences and the interesting people I met over the years have given me deep insights into the interactions between humans and a complex machine.
To expand my knowledge in this interesting scientific field, I have completed a Master of Science in Air Safety Management with majors in human factors and accident investigation. It is my passion to analyse the complex relations between front-line professionals such as airline pilots or train drivers and the technological and organisational factors influencing their task management – and sharing obtained conclusions and recommendations with interested people.
By writing scientific articles for magazines, participating in conferences and meeting safety professionals from different transport industries, I am contributing to the safety of railway and air transport.
When I am not working, I enjoy exercising outdoors with running, hiking and cycling. I am also mentoring young aspiring people wishing to work in aviation industry. As a founder and administrator of a large Quizlet study class for Airbus pilots, I am in touch with numerous colleagues from all over the world. I like to travel by train or by air and get to know new countries and their people.
