Abstract
Every flight consists of numerous variables. For each flight to be completed successfully, the pilot(s) in charge of the operation must recognize these variables and deal with them in a suitable manner. Flying is very dynamic. Pilots must be able to assemble a big picture concerning their particular flight--and to do so consistently and constantly.
