Why did you write this book?
I have always been an avid supporter of GA and enjoyed flying in light aircraft for most of my professional USAF career. As I became older and more proficient in the USAF as an F-16 pilot, I began to realize just how different GA emergency training is from our military emergency training. In the military we have access to advanced simulators, and some of the finest equipment and technology that money can buy. We also focus monthly and on checkrides, on emergency procedures and work on them until we know them in our sleep. I began to see a huge disparity between the two kinds of flying, with respect to emergency preparedness.
