Nobody is having fun if they get dead or maimed. So we share what’s been learned to avoid these fates, mostly to help answer the question: “is this flight on this day, with my skills, my equipment, in this weather, and at this site worth the risk?” We take risk just strapping into these things but some risk can be eliminated while preserving nearly all the fun.
Here are shortcuts to safety-related categories. Fly. Enjoy. Enjoy responsibly. The airline stuff is another one of my passions. We could actually make air travel much safer. And it’s already insanely safe. But why not improve?
