This week, Al confesses to some troubles in the cockpit, that ultimately point to an enemy of a pilot .... Complacency! Marc and Al take the conversation to a deeper level and come to the conclusion, that the very things pilots strive for as part of a safety culture, including process, standardization, and a rigid acceptance of checklists, can contribute to routines that may detract from the quality of a flight and potentially, its safety.
But fear not, the crew brainstorms strategies and tactics that can counteract those outcomes and add new skills and enjoyment to your flying. And even better, the subject is not yet closed. We'd love to hear from you about ways you keep your skills fresh and remain alert to minor anomalies that may have a significant impact on safety. Please share your ideas with the entire SimpleFlight Facebook and Instagram community @simpleflightradio

Congratulations to our Avgeek of the Week!
lineguy99 correctly answered our Instagram post asking for the make and model of a top down and cutoff picture of a single engine aircraft. He knew the picture was of a Piper Mirage, based on the nose cowling, the fuselage, and the DeIce boots. Thought we made it tough with the two bladed prop, but you can't put anything by our Avgeek of the Week
