The Killing Zone: How & Why Pilots Die


The Killing Zone: How & Why Pilots Die Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This literal survival guide for new pilots identifies the killing zone, the 40-250 flight hours during which unseasoned aviators are likely to commit lethal mistakes. Presents the statistics of how many pilots will die in the zone within a year; calls attention to the eight top pilot killers (such as VFR into IFR, Takeoff and Climb); and maps strategies for avoiding, diverting, correcting, and managing the dangers. Includes a Pilot Personality Self-Assessment Exercise that identifies pilot types and how each type can best react to survive the killing zone.
