"The pilot was attempting to land the airplane at a busy airport with high volume airline traffic."
Not the best environment for a weekend warrior.
However, she had a right to be there.
She was unfamiliar with the operating environment and unable to cope with the demands.
Expect ATC to give priority to airline traffic over GA traffic.
Respectfully disagree with this characterization, as does the NTSB
Here are a human factor concepts i took away from this.
1. Decision making. How did she end up in an environment she was incapable of operating in?
2. Place yourself in a situation beyond your abilities and there will be consequences.

Accident reports (often) attempt to pin down an accident to a single action, or omitted action on a checklist, for example.
I disagree. An accident report is looking for root cause.
I'm not trying to disparage the incredibly complex task of investigators.
I wonder though if the relevant human factors are given adequate attention.
They are given some consideration, but it may be true that not adequate. They're also dancing a fine line sometimes between addressing human factors and not declaring pilot error.
Good judgment comes from experience. Experience often comes from bad judgment.
