Tony T. Kern avec 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
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''
(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 "
