The aim of this paper is to discuss developments in aviation with respect to their affect on redundancy and dependability of the complex human-machine system. With the improvement of technical systems and increasing automation in aviation, the attempts to reduce the number of human operators in the flight guidance system is still one goal of actual research. Single pilot cockpit or single controller working positions are the key words for pinpointing this issue. While for technical systems the developments advocate the integration of a higher level of redundancy to improve the dependability, a contrary trend is determinable for the human operator by transitioning to single operator systems. To be able to evaluate this process, this paper analyses three different monitoring principles that form the basis for redundancy and thus dependability. The monitoring principles are (A) the automation-automation, (B) the human-automation, and (C) the human-human. Research that focuses on single operator systems consequently eliminates the human-human monitoring principle. The authors argue that the consequences of this elimination are not understood so far and have great impact on the dependability of the overall system, since some highly valuable aspects of the human-human monitoring principle would be irreplaceably lost with the change to single operator systems.
