''A skilled pilot without flight discipline is a walking time bomb.'' In case history after case history, Lt. Col. Tony Kern shows the hair-raising and often fatal consequences of sloppy flight discipline—and shows you how to make sure that you don't fall into the same traps. Flight Discipline is the perfect tool to help aviators understand flight discipline, improve their skills, and be safer and more effective flyers. It can be used by the individual pilot or in a classroom setting. Key words and concepts are italicized throughout. Chapter review questions test your understanding and summarize the main points of the chapters. Case studies illustrate the tragic consequences of sloppy discipline. The book is divided into three logical sections, each packed with essential information about the hows and whys of flight discipline: Part One: The problem and costs of poor flight discipline in aviation: what can go wrong, and why; Part Two: The anatomy of flight discipline: instruction, planning, communication, and attention management; Part Three: How to insure flight discipline: instruction, planning, communication, and attention management. Conclusion: A personal plan for safer flying. Clear check-points for individual accountability and improvement. Whether flight planning, completing checklists, managing in-flight change, or resisting organizational or peer pressures to cut corners, flight discipline is the all-important mainspring of safe and successful flight.
