This Air Force handbook was written to help pilots who find themselves in hostile environments. While it is designed for use in formal Air Force training, it is also useful for the general reader seeking a comprehensive and complete manual of outdoor survival techniques.

  • Finding your way without a map

  • Finding food and water
  • Building a fire
  • Concealment techniques
  • Using ropes and tying knots
  • Survival at sea
  • Signaling for help
  • Animal tracking
