    Product description: Air Facts: Staying Ahead of the Airplane From day one of flight training, pilots are told to “stay ahead” of the airplane, but what does this mean exactly? In this thought-provoking new program, Richard L. Collins examines situations where pilots are most likely to “get behind” the airplane, triggering a chain of events that could lead to an accident or incident. Collins looks at real-world IFR and VFR scenarios involving weather, fuel management, maneuvering flight, terrain awareness, stall/spin events, emergencies, approaches and takeoffs and landings – areas that have proven to cause problems for pilots of all levels. See what, when and why things went wrong in each example and learn to think ahead and stay ahead of the airplane to keep your flights safely on course. Length approx. 44 minutes.

    Another excellent Air Facts segment. Richard Collins does a superb job of bringing realistic insight into the world of aviation operations. The entire Air Facts series, including this segment, contains life-saving instruction. I highly recommend the entire Air Facts series to any pilot.
