Cloud Spotting –
Do you know what type of cloud the FAA recommends keeping a 20 mile distance from? Or what the “good IFR” clouds are? Use our handy cloud spotting chart from the current issue of the FAA Safety Briefing magazine, which can be downloaded from http://1.usa.gov/1MRD5wv.
Managing a Crew of Just You –
There is no one right answer in aeronautical decision-making. Each pilot is expected to analyze each situation in light of experience level, personal minimums, and current physical and mental readiness, and make his or her own decision. That’s where single-pilot resource management (SRM) comes into play. Get the fact sheet about SRM and the “5P” approach at http://1.usa.gov/1Gu5fvz.
