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.

One afternoon I was discussing flying the F-16 in the USAF with a pilot acquaintance. busterHe was an experienced fellow, but had no formal training or military training. I was discussing High Key and a little about doing engine out practice in the F-16. After about 10 minutes of discussion and joking about our flying he asked me…”What’s High Key?” Right then it dawned on me.
That was the genesis for Engine Out Survival Tactics: Fighter Pilot Tactics for General Aviation Engine Loss Emergencies. 
I DON’T know it all, but I realized that I have a wealth of engine loss practice, experience, and knowledge that certainly can translate over to GA pilots. Heck, if I can learn it, anyone can.
If you really want to know some advanced stuff, and some of the ways in which we train for an engine loss in the F-16 and how you can use those ‘tactics’ and skills in your single engine aircraft, then I invite you to download my book and give it a shot. I am positive it will help you become a better and safer GA pilot.
