Richard Champion de Crespigny was the Captain of Qantas Flight 32, an A380 that suffered massive systems damage when number two engine exploded and severed many connections. It is the kind of crazy emergency that we don't train for. It's the type of crazy emergency that shows airmanship isn't all loops and rolls. It's deep systems knowledge.

(Quote from an 'Airways' magazine interview, May 2015.)

"Risk is our business"

~ Captain James T. Kirk, starship Enterprise. In Star Trek Season 2, episode 22. First aired 9 Feb 1968.

It's ... Kirk ... and ... a bit ... cheesy. But he captures some of the difference between safety, static, and risk, active. If safety was our business we would never fly. Risk management is our business. Flying safely is the result.

"As long as human beings are pilots . . . fatigue will be a critical safety issue that demands our attention."

Sleep and Air Crew Fatigue Management, excellent serious article. Quotes Sully Sullenberger, the NTSB's Mark Rosekind, and many more.

Is it 1947 yet? An outstanding insightful piece on so-called 'human error' and the F/A-18 crash that was reported by the NY Times last week: http://bit.ly/1B8nkfd
Neither Lieutenant Nathan Poloski’s body, nor his F/A-18 Hornet were ever found in waters almost three miles deep. All that was located in the Western Pacific after his fighter jet collided with an...

Meet the man who taught Michael Jordan & Kobe Bryant meditation. If it has helped top athletes achieve high performance under demanding conditions, why would you not try it? It's free!

“The crowd gets quiet, and the moment starts to become the moment for me . . . that’s part of that Zen Buddhism stuff. Once you get into the moment, you know when you are there. Things start to move slowly, you start to see the court very well. You start reading what the defense is trying to do.”

~ Chicago Bull Michael Jordan, after making the game-winning shot to clinch the 1998 championship, his sixth.

“When you get in that zone, it’s just a supreme confidence that you know it’s going in. It’s not a matter of if – it’s going in. . . . Everything slows down. You just have supreme confidence. When that happens, you really do not try to focus on what’s going on [around you], because you could lose it in a second. . . . You have to really try to stay in the present, not let anything break that rhythm. . . . You get in the zone and just try to stay here. You don’t think about your surroundings, or what’s going on with the crowd or the team. You’re kind of locked in.”

~ 5-time world champion Laker Kobe Bryant, on his 81-point game in 2006

"There is nothing we can do, because there is nothing that we failed in … This has to do with human factors, and you cannot predict that."

~ Marlene Manave, the former boss of LAM Mozambique, regards her carrier’s response to the pilot murder-suicide crash of flight 470. So much for studying psychology then. Quoted in The Economist:

“Just this once” is a dangerous phrase to think or say to yourself. Often it serves as an excuse to do something you know you shouldn’t.

~ Carl Richards, author of 'The One-Page Financial Plan: A Simple Way to Be Smart About Your Money'. Insights into our behavior with money often translate well into airmanship ideas.
