Providing tools to aid pilots in achieving the safest possible flights with the least amount of risk, this comprehensive manual covers subjects such as human behavior, identifying and mitigating risk, aeronautical decision-making, single-pilot resource management, automation, and risk management training. Presenting methods pilots can use to manage the workloads associated with each phase of flight, this guide helps to eliminate pilot error, the leading cause of aviation accidents in the past two decades. By integrating risk management into flight training, aspiring pilots learn to be more aware of potential risks in flying, clearly identify those risks, and manage them successfullyleading to a solid understanding of how to avoid the most common pilot errors. Buttressed with explanatory graphics and images, this resource also contains checklists and scenarios to aid in setting personal minimums, sample risk management scenarios, and a controlled-flight-into-terrain (CFIT) checklist.
