Proactive Flying (Paperback)
Proactive Flying is written for pilots who are just beginning their careers in aviation and encourages the development of the skills and qualities that will equip them to become effective crew members, and one day lead a crew of their own as a Captain. This book blends an emphasis on technical proficiency and skills with those essential for leadership and effective communication as the key ingredients for operational safety and effectiveness. In addition to the knowledge, skill, and ability necessary for success in aviation, Captain Taylor adds an emphasis on personal qualities such as attitude, motivation, and self-awareness as essential elements of what is required to be known as a professional. Proactive Flying is written as a guidebook for young and aspiring aviators, and is offered from the perspective of a Captain who wishes to share "the things he wish someone had told him when he was just starting out."
