The Story Behind the Avemco Safety Rewards Program and the Practical Risk Management For Pilots courses

In October 2002, Jim Lauerman, the Executive Vice President and Chief Underwriting Officer of Avemco Insurance Company, wrote to John King enthusiastically endorsing an article in Flying magazine about risk management that featured an interview with John.

That letter, and the discussions that followed, led to the development of the first Practical Risk Management For Pilots course that is changing the way general aviation thinks about, and teaches, risk management. The course is a runaway best seller and has received widespread acclaim from the general aviation press, and from such significant institutions as the FAA and the Medallion Foundation. It was cited as a significant contribution when John King was recently awarded the Excellence in Pilot Training Award by the National Air Transportation Association (NATA). Most important, KING customers have written, over and over again, that the course has made them better pilots, their flying less stressful and more fun, and, in some cases, it saved their lives.

Based on the courses value and importance to pilots, we have expanded the Practical Risk Management Series. These courses focus on critical decisions and techniques that come into play on virtually every flight.

Great Course
Martha and John, as always, deliver an excellent course for safety and risk management. A lot of this I have been exposed to in my military aviation background. But as a civilian, many of the risks that were taken are no longer required, I needed a reminder of that, as I get my training towards certification and purchase of my aircraft.

Great Risk Management Tools!
This course is basic, fundamental training in Risk Management for pilots that contains great wisdom and reflections on pilot characteristics in general, including some proclivity to minimize the recognition, evaluation and management of risk. The RM tools recommended for preflight risk assessment and management and risk "scanning" and management in flight are wise, useful and should become routine components of our flight operations.

Ok Risk Management
I was disappointed in the redundant use of the PAVE and CARE discussions. Risk management discussions should include more human factors, FAA ADM (AC 60-22), and examples of accidents and incidents that show the risks and identify the alternative solutions/decisions.
