In this paper, we discuss particular mechanical and human faults during flight, pilot error in aviation, awareness of situations and reducing error on pilot’s behalf. All aircraft mainly fly straight and level on a navigational course without usually, a pilot attention greatly prohibiting pilot's workloads. Most aircraft flying today really don’t have an autopilot system in it. New age autopilot systems relatively use computer software to control aircrafts. We explore the reasons for the reluctance of the pilots errors and training towards known flight procedure during a in flight situation. The computer deliberates the current aircraft position in the air, and then directs the Flight Control System to adhere to the aircraft maneuvers. Even though the auto control system handles and maneuvers dangerous situations, it can generally thrust an aircraft with less than normal fuel-consumption than a human pilot itself.

Initially holding systems regularly accumulate errors over a long period of time. “Are airline pilots forgetting how to fly”? Most Airliners discourage or are even against pilots activating the autopilot system in fear of accidents compilation. Pilots are still in command of the flight course. Airline training courses sometimes focus on training pilots to adhere to automation, instead of dealing without it. It is essential that pilots are knowledgeable concerning aircraft systems and basic components and safety procedures. Due to negligence and dramatic pilot area. The results show confusion at its worst in severe flight strains, as well as imbalance in authority and operational knowledge. Possible remedies are proposed

INTRODUCTORY
Many of the casual factor, which contribute a pivotal role in aviation operations and is a factor in most aviation accidents. Human Factor is defined as inappropriate human behavior that lowers levels of system effectiveness or safety. It is impossible however to blame plane crashes on one reason since events leading up to an accident are so open. Reasons for plane crashes can be placed in a broad number of categories. Technically, the term human error could include mistakes made by humans operating a system, people who designed the equipment, person who supervise the work. Plane crashes can be quite tragic; a lot can be learned from each accident to overall decrease the number of accidents and deaths that occur in aviation. I will discuss and give examples of some of the most common reasons why airplanes crash and show that most plane crashes are a result of human error in combination with other contributing factors. Plane crashes occur for a number of reasons. There seems to be a consensus with the general public that flying is dangerous, engines fail and planes crash. That is true some times, although the majority of plane crashes occur largely due to a combination of human or pilot error and other factors. Some of the other major reasons for plane crashes that I will touch on are the environment, mechanical failure, poor maintenance, improper procedure or no procedure for the circumstances for that matter As a pilot you sometimes get nauseated by the words of "human error" whenever an accident investigation releases their report. Almost every possible scenario can get traced back to human error in one way or another: pilot failed to initiate proper emergency procedures, pilot failed to stop when he should have...
