Wings is a means for satisfying the
requirements of FAR 61.56-the mandatory flight review. The more compelling
benefit of the Wings program, however, is
using its resources to construct a personalized program of continuing education.
Customize your continuing education:
Being aloft as pilot in command challenges
a pilot's abilities in risk management,
knowledge, and skill. Wings courses offer
an excellent means for addressing the
issues present in each flight.
Start by searching the vast collection
of Wings topics and downloading one
or more of the tutorials on aeronautical decision making (ADM). More than
smooth stick handling or total recall of
the FARs, good decisions are the signs of
a good pilot. In particular, consider the
" 3-Ps " of managing risk-Perceive the
risk, Process information that assesses
the risk, and once aloft, Perform in ways
that mitigate or eliminate the risks.
Within each of these " Ps " are memory
joggers that provide a path for gathering
and applying essential information. ADM
provides a solid foundation for building a
program of continuing education.
When addressing perceived risks,
consider the elements that impact safe
flight-Pilot, Aircraft, Environment, and
External factors. The memory jogger
PAVE works well, provided we accept
" V " as representing enVironment. Next,
process the information used to perceive
or evaluate the risks, using the memory
jogger CARE, where " C " represents the
Consequences of what was obtained
during preflight activities, " A " represents
the Alternatives available to the pilot,
" R " represents Reality (what is the
reality of the situation, not what the
pilot hopes will be present), and " E " is
an additional emphasis that External
factors are critical in managing risk.
The final memory jogger in the " 3-P "
model is DECIDE, where the first " D "
alerts the pilot to Detect what is happening-detect the actual weather, detect
trends in engine instruments such as
increasing oil temperature and decreasing oil pressure, and more. In other
words, maintain situational awareness
by detecting what is happening as the
flight unfolds. The letter " E " reminds
the pilot to Estimate the impact of what
is being detected. Reduced visibility

and lowering clouds foretell weather
being worse than forecast; increasing oil
temperature and decreasing oil pressure foretell engine problems or engine
failure. The letter " C " prompts the pilot
to consider the Choices available for mitigating or eliminating the risks of what
has been detected. Next, the letter " I "
stands for Identifying the best choice,
and the second " D " alerts the pilot to
Do that best choice. Finally, the last " E "
reminds the pilot that all actions must
be Evaluated to determine if the desired
results are being achieved. If not, the
DECIDE process must be used again to
mitigate or eliminate risk. Bottom line:
Once aloft, the pilot must perform. The
PIC never gives up!
Nor should a pilot stop learning.
For expanded fulfillment and peace of
mind, develop a personal program of
continuing education. The FAA's Wings
program, with its vast array of informational materials, provides an excellent
way to tailor a program that addresses
your needs to maintain proficiency. FT
