Defuse the emergency before it happens. Do you know the best way to get found if you're forced down, radioless, in the wilderness? Can you land in heavy surface winds? What happens if your engine fails? Are you prepared for the unexpected?Pilot Jerry Eichenberger's "Handling In-Flight Emergencies" is the best way to prepare for the unexpected-and to fly more confidently and safely. This guide can help you: apply the best prevention, management, and correction strategies for all in-flight emergencies; fly knowing you're armed with the best solutions to in-air crises; follow critical preflight and training procedures that protect you aloft; learn preferred ways of coping with icing, thunderstorms, wind shear, mechanical and electrical failures, IFR conditions, navigational errors, spatial disorientation, and more; discover equipment to help you identify and reduce dangers that might otherwise go undetected; evaluate avionics products before you need them; and, learn from other pilots' errors. It contains real-life case studies to illustrate each emergency situation. This book is another in the McGraw-Hill "Practical Flying Series".
