|Risk Management Handbook
|The FAA Risk Management Handbook (FAA-H-8083-2)is a tool designed to help recognize and
manage risk. It provides a higher level of training to the
pilot in command (PIC) who wishes to aspire to a greater
understanding of the aviation environment and become
a better pilot. This handbook is for pilots of all aircraft
from Weight-Shift Control (WSC) to a Piper Cub, a Twin
Beechcraft, or a Boeing 747. A pilot’s continued interest
in building skills is paramount for safe flight and can assist
in rising above the challenges which face pilots of all
Some basic tools are provided in this handbook for developing
a competent evaluation of one’s surroundings that allows for
assessing risk and thereby managing it in a positive manner.
Risk management is examined by reviewing the components
that affect risk thereby allowing the pilot to be better prepared
to mitigate risk.
The pilot’s work requirements vary depending on the mode
of flight. As for a driver transitioning from an interstate onto
the city streets of New York, the tasks increase significantly
during the landing phase, creating greater risk to the pilot and
warranting actions that require greater precision and attention.
This handbook attempts to bring forward methods a pilot can
use in managing the workloads, making the environment safer
for the pilot and the passengers.
