Feature Article: Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Even the best instruction will not suffice if the student does not show good judgment. The student must always be making a series of judgmental decisions at every phase of flight. These decisions are made, just as while driving constantly and instantaneously. This ability to judge is an intangible but essential part of living and flying safely. What can you do to apply good judgment to flying?

1. Learn by the highest application of knowledge. That is, learn from the experience of others. Read, listen, and ask questions.

2. Fly with other pilots at every opportunity. What you learn not to do is just as important as learning what to do.

3. Gain your experience a little bit at a time. A few 100-mile flights are better than one across the country.

4. Keep studying, learning and flying. Long pauses in studying, learning and flying are quite wasteful of time and money.

5. Don't hurry a new aircraft checkout. Two flights are much better than one. Develop your own checklist.
