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.
