"...a definitive and invaluable roadmap through a landscape of shattered airplanes and lives in which the telling of each and every incident offers a very real pass to avoiding the same fate."
--John J. Nance

Flying involves risks. Fortunately, most of these risks have been identified and managed down to remarkably low levels. However, accidents still occur, and the key to successful flight is an in-depth knowledge of the risks and how to effectively manage them.

Managing Risk: Best Practices for Pilots uses actual aircraft accident examples, statistics, aviation safety studies, and the authors' more than 60 years of combined experience as pilots and flight safety educators to document and describe the 10 most significant accident threat categories, and shed light on the applicable human-factor issues that make pilots vulnerable to them.

This book provides practical strategies as well as "best practice" countermeasures pilots can use to avoid or effectively manage risks during crucial phases of flight. Readers will have a more complete knowledge of the external threats to flight safety, coupled with a deeper understanding of how human errors often play out in the cockpit.

Students and pilots at all certificate levels will improve their risk management skills by learning the practices described in this book, and ATP applicants will find it fulfills a portion of the new knowledge requirements that become effective August 1, 2014.

Written by Dale Wilson and Gerald Binnema, with a Foreword by John J. Nance. Softcover, 7-1/4" x 9", 248 pages. Also available as an eBook and eBundle.

Check out this great article on Managing Risk: Best Practices for Pilots from the May/June 2014 edition of Mentor Magazine. The article was written by longtime aviation writer and teacher at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Joe Clark, who served as a U.S. Navy attack pilot and now owns a Cessna 170. He and his wife, Ardis, own and operate BluewaterPress LLC, a small publishing company.

Managing Risk: Best Practices for Pilots is "...A great compilation of old and new lessons that pilots should all know. The book also elaborates on today's resources available to the pilot. A reading that reminds that we are all humans. Book makes a great gift for someone who just got his/her private or a rating; a great gift to those who have just completed a BFR "
