pilots.Defensive Flying is aviation humorist Rod Machado's guide to
staying alive in an airplane. In this entertaining and educational video

defense." Statistics reflect how many aviation accidents could be avoided if
pilots would think defensively.

airplane, as well as never underestimating aerial enemies. Listen to an actual,
hair-raising, in-flight emergency as two professional pilots exercise some very
