Critical Flying Situations (Preview)

The following are situations where correct reactions are critical. There are sometimes compounding issues, but the basics remain the same. Most of these situations are included in questions on the P2 exam, so these descriptions should cover the basic concepts of dealing with these critical situations.

All student pilots are recommended to attend a maneuvers clinic to learn these techniques directly. There is no substitute for experience and practice to help a pilot’s ability to react correctly when such situations occur in the real world.
