My name is Ron Daniels. I'm a pilot and educator and committed to your success in aviation. This forum permits me to share some of my thoughts and ideas with you on the important topics and themes discussed here. The forum also provides you with the opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas which you are welcome to post. What you have to say is of value. It may even help someone else be successful. It's what this forum is all about. Take a little time to examine the topics on the left. And feel free post your thoughts and ideas.
Our primary theme is Airmanship. So let's begin with a question. What exactly is Airmanship? What do you think Airmanship is? It's one of the first questions I ask as a CRM facilitator. Often the answers are wide ranging and generalized because "airmanship" actually describes a number of attributes in a professional pilot. Let's examine further some of those attributes and I'll share with you my thoughts and ideas on each topic. You can start by selecting one of the topics on the left.
At this point, we're going to keep things short and simple. The content posted on each topic is intentionally brief. Each topic represents a starting point in our discussion of airmanship.
I sincerely hope this concise discussion will benefit you personally and as a professional aviator. Please feel free to provide feedback. If anything discussed here was of importance to you, you certainly have something important to say. Your comments are welcome. You'll see more content on this and other topics so check back.

To your continued success.....Ron Daniels

Airmanship is flying into the Brasserie en Isle St. Louis for a good beer or a Beaujolais.

The Inner Art of Airmanship website < > describes it this way: "All pilots understand what airmanship is, even if they can not define it in words. Airmanship is the powerful combination of knowledge, skill, awareness and discipline in action that is the difference between passengers and pilots. It is our common heritage with birds and sailors. It links old captains of 500-seat airliners with new students in single-seat gliders. It links pilots of spaceships and Piper Cubs, it links fighter jocks and rotor-heads. It is the sweet central essence of piloting. Airmanship is the key to flight safety and efficiency."
