Overview

“Pilots don’t crash airplanes because they want to,” says Collins, but even experienced pilots do. The best way to stay out of an accident report, he suggests, is to understand and manage the risks inherent in flying—every time you get in an airplane. In this completely new book, Collins shares some personal insights learned from his lifetime of flying in general aviation airplanes. You’ll learn: • The three word emergency checklist every pilot should know • Why a pilot’s thought processes matter more than his experience • Why Collins decided to stop flying as pilot in command—on his own terms • The unique challenges (and rewards) of night flying • Why some airplane types have poor accident records • How to manage technology in the cockpit, and when it’s doing more harm than good Throughout, Collins uses real life examples from his vast experience to illustrate each point. This book is a must-have for any pilot who wants to make their next hour a safer one.

    Highly Recommended for all Private Pilots

    After you have earned your Private Pilots license or before you take your next biennial you must read this book. I will increase your awareness and depth of knowledge greater than any reference book. Richard uses true stories to illustrate points about safety and proficiency. It will humble you but you will be a safer and more proficient pilot.
