Don't fly solo before you understand all the dangers of the killing zone! This survival guide for new pilots identifies the pitfalls waiting from the period of 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 situations that lie ahead while trying to build decision making skills on their own. Based on the first in depth scientific study of pilot behavior and general aviation flying accidents in over 20 years, The Killing Zone offers practical advice to help identify the time frame in which you are most likely to die.

Aviation specialist Paul Craig offers rare insights into the special risks new pilots face and includes updated preventive strategies for flying through this period. 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. Provides guidelines for avoiding, evading, diverting, correcting, and managing dangers. Includes a "Pilot Personality Self-Assessment Exercise".
