Fly Maui

Feb 8, 2020

Personal minimums are clearly defined, written down, and regularly updated tolerances you give yourself when making a go or no-go decision. Some people just think wind and visibility, but your minimums should extend even to proficiency, fuel, and maintenance issues. Your personal minimums are just that: personal. They’re tailored by you, and possibly with the help of your CFI, to your level of knowledge, skill and ability. The purpose of this exercise and sticking to them is to help you identify risks and possible stresses that could keep you from having a safe flight.
