"... a guide to the landscape of the wrecked aircraft and life, in which the story of each incident constitutes a very real pass to avoid the same fate".
-John J. Nance
Flying involves a risk. Fortunately, most of these threats have been identified and managed up to an exceptionally low level. However, accidents are still happening, and the key to a successful flight is in depth knowledge of the risks and ways of effectively managing them.
Risk Management: The best practices for pilots use real examples of flight accidents, statistics, air safety testing, and more than 60 years of collaborative experience of authors as pilots and flight safety educators to document and describe the 10 most important accident hazard categories and to shed light on the applicable human factor issues that make pilots vulnerable.
This book contains practical strategies, as well as preventive measures based on the "best practices" that pilots can use to avoid or effectively manage the risk during the key phases of the flight. Readers will have a fuller understanding of the external threats to flight safety, combined with a deeper understanding of how often human errors are played in the cockpit.
Students and pilots at all certificate levels will improve their risk management skills, learning the practices described in this book, and the ATP candidates will conclude that they meet part of the new knowledge requirements that will take effect on 1 August 2014.
