Airline pilots are believed to be leaders of both passengers, crew, and employers. The newly hired pilots, as well as current pilots who advance to the captains, must have the training, experience and skills demonstrating practical leadership and professionalism. In addition to the accumulated experience in the cockpit pilots, pilots need direct guidance on how to act as a pilot-in-command. The pilots know that when something goes wrong, they all turn to the captain-the pilot-in-command-to correct the situation.
Pilots commanding: Your best trip, every trip goes beyond what is required by flight training programs, in what is both a rarity and a necessity: a solid advice for students and professional airmen, how to be the leaders of transformation. This second edition contains new discussions on professionalism and security in today's aviation operations.
focusing on a range of topics related to the application of core leadership skills, the author includes crew roles, crew briefings, flight attendants, crew resource management (CRM), threat and error management (TEM), ground services, shipping, service client, abnormal and emergency situations, stops, crew dynamics, resting rules 14 14 CFR part 117, security and a new model of transformational leadership and professionalism for pilots.
The Pilots In Command program, especially useful for new airline pilots and skipper candidates, shares insights and techniques that are typically achieved only by many years of experience and interactions with other pilots and crew at 35,000 feet.
