Overview

The specter of colliding with another aircraft is a constant threat in increasingly crowded airspace. Haunted by her own harrowing near-miss as a student pilot, Shari Stamford Krause uncovered a sobering fact: the Federal Aviation Administration anticipates a 300% rise in mid-airs over the next 20 years. Krause set out to produce a complete guide to making the not-so-friendly skies safer, and in Avoiding Mid-Air Collisions, she delivers. This breakthrough manual uses conventional means of collision avoidance and the latest research and technological developments to build a sophisticated, comprehensive system of mid-air collision avoidance. Invaluable not only to small aircraft pilots and students, but commercial, small jet, and airline pilots as well, this noteworthy book is sure to become the preferred collision avoidance text at universities and flight schools.
