About the Authors
How to deal
with the gestalt of landouts: The heightened tensions and emotions,
denial, and the effect of previous conditioning during your X-C flight.
Don is a Gold Badge, Triple-Diamond
cross-country glider pilot with many cross-country flights of over 500
kilometers. In this new Gliding Mentor Series book Don teaches us the
psychological factors that accompany off-field landings, and the mental
conditioning that can lead us to disaster if we fail to change gears
from "Must Complete The Task" mode to "Mr. Spock" mode.
Interesting, entertaining, downright funny at times, and a very thorough
treatment of the emotional and psychological factors that influence the
outcome of an off-field landing. I promise that you will be surprised to
discover how many there are!
Includes a chapter by Bob Wander that provides a thorough review of how
to develop and then maintain skills that keep you safe in off-field
landings. This is, in my opinion, the only complete treatment of
off-field landings in print in the English language.
