9780070342842: Redefining Airmanship

Redefining Airmanship offers the first concrete model of the abstract ideal of "airmanship," and gives the reader step-by-step guidance for self-appraisal and improvement in the areas of flight proficiency, teamwork, and good judgment in crisis situations. The author, Major Tony Kern, draws on his extensive flight and crew-training experience in the U.S. Air Force, but his model is invaluable for all pilots, whether military, recreational, or commercial.

"Kern's work is a breakthrough, and a benchmark."
--John J. Nance, author of Blind Trust

Review:

``(Airmanship) is a unique work, which, perhaps for the first time, begins to define the professional ethos of being an airman.'' (Nance, John J. Author of Blind Trust and ABC News Aviation Consultant)

``Kern hits the mark with the focus on individual responsibility and airmanship. . .'' ``There is no improvement like self-improvement, and ``Airmanship'' hits the critical points on complacency, discipline, and pilot judgment'' ( Brigadier General Chuck Yeager)

From the Back Cover:

Here, for the first time, is a systematic model of professional airmanship, for all pockets of the aviation community. With this book as a guide, you too will develop the "right stuff" for today's complex world of flight. Step by step, system by system, the book shows you how to:

  • Use history's greatest flyers as role models--and follow in their footsteps
