Summary

The rogue pilot has long been a menace in our skies, but a clear definition of just what a rogue aviator is, and concrete strategies on how to deal with one, havenÕt existedÑuntil now. Lieutenant Colonel Kern gives clear, practical advice for spotting, dealing with, and preventing the dangerous lapses in judgement and discipline that make a "rogue" aviator. An essential book for any pilot or aviation manager.
