The Learning Never Stops!
Aviation is complicated business, and it can be deadly if not undertaken with the right mindset. Our goal here at Code 7700 is to prepare you to avoid the day you will need to Squawk 7700, but if that day ever comes, to prepare you to deal with it competently.
Our Latest Update
I get a particular kind of question several times a year, asking for my advice on planning careers on achieving goals. At first, I wondered what qualified me to give any advice at all, but I always tried to answer sincerely. After a few years of this, I finally understood why I was getting the question, and that realization has helped to refine my answer. Now that I am retired from active flying, maybe I can put a "capstone" on that advice.
Goals Versus Plans, and Learning Focus
Our Previous Update:
Chances are the landing techniques you were taught in your first airplane don't really work on that fancy airplane you are flying now. But does anyone really train how to land heavier iron? For most of us, landing an airplane has evolved into an art because few understand the science. Once you understand the science, your landings can become more consistent, safer, and believe it or not, smoother.

I am pleased to announce I've finally figured out how to do a weekly newsletter that keeps you up-to-date with all things about Code 7700 and gives you the chance to download free PDF versions of the most popular articles. On the first Monday each month we'll have a free PDF article about a flight technique or procedure, a leadership topic, or an accident case study. The next weeks will feature an in-depth review of a book about flying, an in-depth review of a movie about flying, other stories, and a look at the Code 7700 mailbag.
