Aviatrix, the blogger behind the Cockpit Conversation blog, has shared a couple of gems she has come across from aviation company manuals, including the following “helpful” advice:
"Pilots must use their best judgment in dealing with life threatening situations."
"In the event of a forced landing, if time permits, it would be advisable to anticipate possible injuries (especially head trauma and broken ankles) to one or both pilots and have an evacuation plan."
(Aviatrix also added that she wished she “had the lack of scruples to quote you the hijack bomb threat instructions because they are hilarious….”)
Hence, we would like to ask any professional pilots out there whether you have ever come across any “good advice” from an aviation company manual and if so, what was it?
