Description:

Flying involves risks. Fortunately, most of these risks have been identified and managed down to remarkably low levels. However, accidents still occur, and the key to successful flight is an in-depth knowledge of the risks and how to effectively manage them."Managing Risk: Best Practices for Pilots" uses actual aircraft accident examples, statistics, aviation safety studies, and the authors' more than 60 years of combined experience as pilots and flight safety educators to document and describe the 10 most significant accident threat categories, and shed light on the applicable human-factor issues that make pilots vulnerable to them.This book provides practical strategies as well as "best practice" countermeasures pilots can use to avoid or effectively manage risks during crucial phases of flight. Readers will have a more complete knowledge of the external threats to flight safety, coupled with a deeper understanding of how human errors often play out in the cockpit.Students and pilots at all certificate levels will improve their risk management skills by learning the practices described in this book, and ATP applicants will find it fulfills a portion of the new knowledge requirements that become effective August 1, 2014.Written by Dale Wilson and Gerald Binnema, with a Foreword by John J. Nance. (Softcover, 7-1/4" x 9", 248 pages. Also available as an eBook and eBundle.)
