Canadian Pilots and AMEs will recognize Bill Yearwood as the definitive accident investigator for Canada's Transportation Safety Board, awarded the Governor General’s citation for his years of dedication to bringing safety considerations for aviation front and centre. Well, here it is now in print from the investigator himself—truly, a TEXT BOOK on learning to stay safe in flight from the volume of data acquired from accident investigations. Bill’s book is titled: Getting It. We suggest that you will start to Get It from the very first page, in fact, we suspect your next walk-around will reflect the message you got from Getting It.

    Great book Bill, I just finished reading it.  It really engages the reader with raising the skirt on your own dumb moments, it makes it very relatable to anyone who has been in the field as a pilot or AME. Learning from others and avoiding a first hand experience is superior to making avoidable mistakes yourself.
