This FAA handbook provides tools to help pilots recognize
and manage risk and presents definitive practical guidance on how to
implement and conduct the “identify, assess, and mitigate” tasks
identified in the Airman Certification Standards (ACS). Pilots who
practice effective risk management have predetermined personal standards
and have formed habit patterns and checklists to incorporate them. This
handbook presents methods that pilots of all types of aircraft can use
to manage the workloads associated with each phase of flight, resulting
in a safer, more enjoyable, and less stressful experience for both
themselves and their passengers.

In the last 20 years, approximately 85 percent of aviation accidents
have been caused by “pilot error,” which can result from focusing
primarily on the physical aspects of flying the aircraft. The
certificated flight instructor (CFI) who integrates risk management into
flight training teaches aspiring pilots how to be more aware of the
potential risks in flying, clearly identify those risks, and manage them
successfully—building a solid understanding of how to avoid the most
common pilot errors and supporting a safety culture in aviation.

An important component to airman certification, risk management is
applied by identifying, monitoring, and managing potential components
that affect risk, thereby allowing the pilot to be better prepared to
mitigate risk. This full-color manual covers subjects such as an
introduction to risk management, personal minimums, identifying hazards
and associated risks, assessing risk, mitigating risk, threat and error
management, automation and flight path management, and aeronautical
decision-making in flight. Appendices contain additional risk management
training and tools, accident case studies, and risk management
exercises applicable to small general aviation training aircraft,
helicopters, and large turbine-powered aircraft. Helpful tools include
chapter-end summaries, glossary, index, and internet resources
throughout for additional resources and information.
