For a pilot knowing your emergency procedures are critical to your survival in a crisis. You can’t just think you know your EP’s (emergency procedures). They have to be memorized so that you just react and not have to think about what you need to do while at the same time pulling out your checklist.
Fighter Sweep contributor and pilot extraordinaire, Nate “Buster” Jaros has put his extensive knowledge and experience in handling airborne emergencies into a book called “Engine Out Survival Tactics.” And to make it even more exciting “Buster” is giving away a free eBook version!
