Title: Stupid pilot tricks


1
Stupid pilot tricks
  • (featuring a cast of thousands)

2
What is the stupidest trick of them all?
  • Hint all in this room are performing this trick
    right now.

3
It can happen to me
  • It might?
  • It will

4
Two ways to stay safe
  • Be really smart Think of all the things that can
    go wrong, and figure out ways to prevent them
  • Be rather stupid Pay attention to the problems
    other pilots encounter, and learn what you can
    from them.
  • Goal Make it a bit less likely that youll fall
    into the known traps.

5
Ego
  • Face it This is a really bad pastime for anyone
    with a big ego.
  • You will look foolish - regularly
  • People can be bluffed weather, gliders, air,
    gravity etc. remain quite unimpressed
  • Ego interferes with perceptions that help you
    succeed
  • EM Soaring is about seeing things as they are,
    not as we wish them to be.

6
Case study The R-101
  • Conclusion Human nature is complex and not
    especially rational. It intersects with aviation
    and its hazards in many strange ways.

7
Mental rigidity
  • The monkey trap
  • The pilot trap

8
Case study Final glide at2005 Senior Contest
  • Conclusion Pilots can have trouble letting go
    of the rice. EYA!

9
Can do
  • A positive, confident attitude is expected of
    pilots
  • But it isnt the best approach in every situation

10
Case study aero retrieve atNew Castle
  • Conclusion Your response should be
    appropriate to the actual problem at hand. EYA!
  • Other cases
  • Problem early in tow
  • Tail dolly left on

11
Margin for error
  • Form the habit of thinking about how close you
    are to a problem
  • Experiment with virtual limits
  • Final glide to a point above the field
  • Landing at a chosen spot

12
Case study Tree landing at2005 Senior Contest
  • Conclusion When you plan a maneuver with a
    low margin for error, dont expect to get away
    with even a small mistake.

13
Assembly problems
  • If it can be done wrong, its only a matter of
    time until it is done wrong
  • Your job is to postpone that problem
  • Other pilots will show you where your time
    attention should be spent
  • PCC vs. CAC

14
Case study ASW-20
  • Why does this problem keep happening?

15
Checklists
  • Proven value
  • Proper purposeful prior preparation
    persistently prevents poor (perhaps pitiful
    painful) performance
  • Often ignored, skimped, skipped
  • Standard vs. customized

16
Case study gear-up landing
  • Conclusion A nearly correct checklist
    sort of properly applied isnt worth much.
  • If problems form a pattern, its time to pay
    attention.
