Unusual Attitudes

Everyone who obtains a pilot's license receives training in how to recover from unusual attitudes--potential loss-of-control situations in which there is an excessive aircraft bank or pitch angle. But reporters to ASRS sometimes note that "unusual attitude" can convey another meaning that occasionally surfaces in ASRS reports-a state of mind that can lead to safety consequences for others.

This month we offer a cross-section of incident reports that illustrate reporters' concerns for communication, professionalism, and courtesy. These narratives are a reminder that positive attitudes and thoughtful actions can go a long way toward making flying safer for everyone.
