Understanding Air France 447 Book Released!

My new book "Understanding Air France 447" is now available on and

Addressed are the many contributing aspects of weather, human factors, and airplane system operation and design that the crew could not recover from. How each contributed is covered in detail along with what has been done, and needs to be done in the future to prevent this from happening again.

Discover the roles played by fatigue, alternate law, static port position, stall training at low altitude, flight director addiction/loss of skills, radar operation, and more.

Also visit the book's companion for a free sample chapter and lots of additional resources including a flight data recorder sheet to print out and follow along, the accident reports, voice and flight data transcripts, and related articles and studies.

Should also be available on the iBooks store soon

Excellent Bill! I'm so happy you did this and it's gone live. More to come...

Congratulations, Captain!

Is there a plan for issuance of an actual "book" (you know, paper, ink...)?

Rolls? Like bread or aileron? I hope you proof read your book more thoroughly than the announcement.

Mild kidding aside, good luck!
