From the Paper:

"Commercial flights have been going on for a long time. Throughout this history there have always been accidents. Weather, mechanical failures, and other issues have worked to produce some of these. However, there are some accidents that can only be attributed to what is termed "pilot error." Those that want to understand how these accidents happen and why have studied many of these accidents and tried to determine what caused the human error that ultimately led to the crash . Many of these individuals have discovered that the fatigue of the crew and the pilot has been what has led to the crash in many cases."
