Airmanship is that quality possessed by some pilots that marks them out - the difference between a competent pilot and a good pilot. It is that extra dimension of understanding and sympathy with an aircraft that makes a pilot safer, more aware of his surroundings and better able to cope with the unexpected. Airmanship is a quality that not all pilots possess but it is something to which all pilots can aspire. This book sets out to define airmanship and offers numerous ways in which a pilot can work on improving his or her flying and hone decision making on the ground and in the air, bringing the elusive goal of airmanship within the grasp of anyone.
