- Review your basic procedures. The simple, mundane practices are often what keep us safe.
- Think through what actions you would take for various aircraft emergencies.
- Consider what effect summer temperatures will have on the performance and limitations of your aircraft.
- Contemplate what factors may be subtly building up your cumulative fatigue. Days in the summer are long, often resulting in more activity and less sleep.
- Practice real time risk management, even with small decisions. Make a habit of mentally asking yourself, "What could go wrong with what I'm doing right now? What could I do to make sure the worst case scenario doesn't kill me?"
