The essence of my message is that a pilot who things he knows all the answers is a very dangerous person indeed!
You are on track with 3 M's. My extensive crash investigation focusing on human factors has led me to closely evaluate 1 - the man; 2- the machine and 3 - the enviroment. BTW, there are many "good" pilots but zero "perfect" pilots.
Hey Brad, up till now (having flown and trained over 2,000 professional pilots in 18,000 hours), i never met the PERFECT PILOT". You are a true rare bird. Ever hear of target fixation? You best educate yourself. If knot, you are destined to become a perfect dead pilot!
Hey Dee Lowry. You sure are being extra sensitive. Even strongly sexist. If you were an insider to this abismal display of PIC authority, you would completely change your opinion. Are you trying to cover up terrible CRM with sexism? Who slapped your fanny last?
Certainly need more info before acting in judgment. My extensive flight training experience as a full time professional CFII in TAA is that a scary number of self proclaimed "instrument qualified" pilots are really push button pilots. Also PARTIAL panel with PARTIAL SKILLS rarely ends successfully or predictably with a safe outcome.
