Pirep: King Practical 05-05Written by Kevin Moore
I have long felt that the most significant dangers GA pilots face are related to their own judgment rather than their skill at the mechanics of flying. I’m sure I’m not alone among readers of this magazine in having lost a few acquaintances in aircraft accidents, the circumstances of which sadly reinforced this feeling.
Accordingly I have been perplexed by the nearly complete lack of judgment-related instruction in both private pilot and instrument training. Why is the most frequent cause of accidents and fatalities completely ignored in training that is supposed to produce “safe pilots?” Thus I was very interested when I learned of the King Risk Management Course instructional videos on exactly this subject.
