The most important hour in your logbook
“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. Approx. 210 pages, soft cover.

Author has incredible experience! Paperback keeps cost down.

A little pricey for a paperback.

I am really enjoying this book by Mr. Collins. I got back into flying about a year ago after a 30-year absence. I have especially enjoyed the chapters on accidents and engines.
