Overview

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,haven't existed—until 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.

Rogue pilots are a silent menace,undermining aviation and threatening lives and property every day. But never—until now—have they been exposed for the danger that they are. Rogues are a unique brand of undisciplined pilots who place their own egos above all else—endangering themselves,other pilots and their passengers,and everyone over whom they fly. They are found in the cockpits of major airliners,military jets,and in general aviation. Worst of all,they sometimes appear among normally disciplined pilots,many of whom are just one poor decision or temptation away from fiery disaster. Learn how to recognize the rogue in action,how to weigh the options and costs of dealing with one,and what your organization's role should be. Kern gives you a unique toolkit for diagnosing and solving the rogue menace,including: a clear definition and description of the rogue aviator: personality,habits,and actions. Case studies of individual and organizational culprits; how to spot and cope with the rogue; personal risk analysis to use in self-diagnosis; how to create safeguards against rogue behavior. Safety,profit margins,personal advancement,and organizational survival all depend on dealing successfully with rogue behavior,and Darker Shades of Blue: TheRogue Pilot is the first—and only—guide that shows you how.
