Aviation specialist Paul Craig offers rare insights into the special risks new pilots face and includes updated preventive strategies for flying through the killing zone . . . alive: ● New to the Second Edition: Dealing with Glass Cockpits; GPS Moving Maps; Collision Avoidance Systems ● Alerts you to the 12 mistakes likely to kill you ● Provides guidelines for avoiding, evading, diverting, correcting, and managing dangers ● Includes a "Pilot Personality Self-Assessment Exercise" for an individualized survival strategy
