Pilot’s Survival Guide: Personal Minimums Workbook


Just in case you haven’t noticed, General Aviation is still lacking that stellar safety record the Airlines like to boast about.  In GA, we still kill about 400 people every year in small airplanes and have well over 1,000 incidents per year.  Needless to say, there’s room for improvement.

The improvement starts with each one of us individually doing our part to keep ourselves and our passengers safe.  I’m sure you believe you already do a good job of that, and I’m sure you do too. If you think you have no room for improvement, you can put down this book now.  There is absolutely nothing I or anyone else can do to help you or your passengers.

If you believe that a 10,000-hour pilot can make mistakes and poor decisions just as well as a 250-hour pilot; keep reading, fill out this workbook, and live by it. Literally.

This is a workbook designed to help you establish personal minimums that will keep you safe in the air. We’ve all heard of basic personal minimums, visibility, ceiling, cross-wind components. Despite all pilots having these “personal minimums” in their minds, we still have accidents each year. The airlines on the other hand operate by far stricter guidelines that help keep them and their passengers safe. They have thought of many of the scenarios that could get their pilots into trouble flying big jets, and set standards to help keep them out of trouble. This book is designed to help you think of and help you plan for some of those scenarios that can get you into trouble, and help you set standards that will keep you out of trouble while flying general aviation aircraft.

The second half of this book is dedicated to decoding METARs and TAFs.  Keep it handy as you go through Private, Instrument, and Commercial Pilot training to help you decode some of those more complex coded weather observations and forecasts.
