Now available from ASA is “Managing Risk: Best Practices for Pilots,” which 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.
The book provides 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, according to ASA officials.
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 Aug. 1.
Written by Dale Wilson and Gerald Binnema, with a foreword by John J. Nance, the book is available in softcover, as well as in ebook form.
