"Redefining Airmanship" offers the first concrete model of the abstract ideal of "airmanship," and gives the reader step-by-step guidance for self-appraisal and improvement in the areas of flight proficiency, teamwork, and good judgment in crisis situations. The author, Major Anthony Kern, draws on his extensive flight and crew-training experience in the US Air Force, but his model is invaluable for all pilots, whether military, recreational, or commercial. "Kern's work is a breakthrough, and a benchmark." -John J. Nance, author of "Blind Trust".

"(Airmanship) is a unique work, which, perhaps for the first time, begins to define the professional ethos of being an airman." -- Nance, John J. Author of Blind Trust and ABC News Aviation Consultant "Kern hits the mark with the focus on individual responsibility and airmanship..." "There is no improvement like self-improvement, and "Airmanship" hits the critical points on complacency, discipline, and pilot judgment" Brigadier General Chuck Yeager
