Product Description
Good decision-making can be taught! One way is to review hazardous attitudes and the “antidote thoughts” that allow you to evaluate a situation and respond appropriately.

The hazardous attitudes discussed in this slideshow (anti-authority, impulsivity, invulnerability, macho and resignation) were identified by aviation studies that became the basis of decision-making training for pilots.

Pilots, CFIs and FAA ground instructors will already be familiar with the underlying principles illustrated in these slides, but this is designed to be a “standalone” piece that may be used with students (pilots or not) from high school on up. The examples are drawn from events in history, including but not only aviation history.

Some of the historic figures included in this slideshow are:

George Armstrong Custer and the RMS Titanic in examples of the hazardous attitudes "macho" and "invulnerability."
Chesley Sullenberger (who successfully landed a disabled airliner on a river) and Margaret Corbin (a Revolutionary War heroine) in examples of the antidote to the hazardous attitude of "resignation."

A set of "Five Hazardous Attitudes—Examples in Driving Situations" and a brief quiz are included at the end of the slideshow or may be printed from separate PDF documents.

An example of a driving situation and response:

Situation: You see that the road ahead is covered with fast-moving water flowing toward a river. You think to yourself: “Other people might get swept away by trying to drive through moving water, but it won’t happen to me.”

What hazardous attitude do you have, and what should you do?

Response: You have the hazardous attitude of invulnerability. The antidote to this hazardous attitude is to remind yourself, “It can happen to me.” Pick another route!

The slideshow is provided in both PowerPoint and PDF formats. I hope you find it to be a useful resource!

Happy teaching,
