While looking something else up, I ran across what the PHAK calls "a more comprehensive risk assessment form." ) It's figure 2-6 in the book. I've seen a couple of these before - you answer the questions, there are scored values and the higher the score, the greater the risk to assess. I'm curious about the subjectivity of some of the questions, though. For example - one of the questions is about planning the flight. One of the options is "Used Charts And Computer to Assist." - It has a zero score for least risk. Another is "Used computer program for all planning." - This has a three-point score. There are some pretty sophisticated programs out there which provide some significant SA around flight planning. Hell - ForeFlight alone is pretty comprehensive, and I know there is some pro-grade stuff out there that some of you use which goes beyond that. So why - according to the PHAK - is using charts and computer to 'assist' less risky than running the numbers in a computer? What does going with a pure software solution do to increase risk?
