Reading accident reports can tell you how accidents happen and teach you what not to do. That's one reason we created Flight Chain App. But we kept wondering -- how can we reach more pilots with safety information, have more impact when we reach them, and help improve decision-making skills?
As the saying goes, a good pilot is always learning. Steven Daun, the National Chief Pilot for American Flyers, recently wrote an article suggesting ways every pilot can learn something new. Here are three aviation books that can help you keep learning and fly safe on every flight.
