WARNING!

Don’t fly solo before you understand all the dangers of the killing zone.

It could save your life!

This survival guide for new pilots identifies the pitfalls waiting inside the killing zone, the period from 50 to 350 flight hours when they leave their instructors behind and fly as pilot in command for the first time. Although they’re privately certified, many of these unseasoned aviators are unaware of the potential accidents that lie ahead while trying to build decision-making skills on their own — many times falling victim to inexperience.

Based on the first in-depth scientific study of pilot behavior and general aviation flying accidents in over 20 years, The Killing Zone, Second Edition offers practical advice to help identify the time frame in which you are most likely to die. Author and aviation specialist Paul Craig offers rare insights into the special risks new pilots face and includes updated preventive strategies for flying through the killing zone . . . alive:

NEW to the Second Edition: Dealing with Glass Cockpits; GPS Moving Maps; Collision Avoidance Systems; including a new chapter on Available Safety versus Actual Safety

Alerts you to the 12 mistakes likely to kill you

Provides guidelines for avoiding, evading, diverting, correcting, and managing dangers

Includes a “Pilot Personality Self-Assessment Exercise” for an individualized survival strategy

GREAT BOOK FOR NEW PILOTS Great book for new pilots! The title may scare some people but really has such great info in it. I tell all the pilots I know in training to read it!

Rick S says:

really valuable A really valuable resource for pilots. The description of various accidents was very instructive. I’m reminded of an old saying: “you have to learn from the mistakes of others, you can’t live long enough to make them all yourself”.

Amazon Customer says:

I like it very much! This is exactly what I was looking for when beginning the pilot’s license course. Amazing how much you can learn from all those incidents and accidents. Prevention is the best solution and without this knowledge you would have to determine everything yourself. The book puts things simple and makes it easy to remember. Like it very much!
