Each and every pilot and flight attendant who have read Blue Water Ditching by Captain Dave Montgomery walk away with five items they have never thought about before.

With more than 2,700 blue water and polar crossing flights a day, there has never been a higher need for air crews to be prepared for a possible disaster. When a catastrophic aircraft failure occurs over water, there is just no time to plan out the next steps. In order to successfully turn a potential tragedy into a success story, the air crew must already have a strategy in place.

While the chances of this type of disaster occurring have dramatically decreased in recent years, all ocean-crossing air crews still face the possibility of a blue water ditching. In an age where professional air crews are required to have extraordinarily high levels of knowledge in numerous specialized fields of aviation techniques, rules, regulations, and operation procedures, regrettably few are trained in how to prepare for and properly execute a ditching. While all crew members are taught how to handle electrical malfunctions, engine failure, and how to exit an aircraft in case of a water landing, the sad truth remains that the actual preparation for and execution of a ditching has very rarely been trained from beginning to end.

However, Captain Dave Montgomery’s revolutionary new guide, Blue Water Ditching: Training Professional Crewmembers for the Unthinkable Disaster, aims to change all that by filling the vacuum that previously existed in this area of emergency management. By placing all of the pertinent data about blue water ditching into the hands of crew members and addressing the fears, questions, job assignments, and preparations, Captain Montgomery’s guide is suitable for pilots and crews of all experience levels.

With firsthand accounts, facts, figures, recommendations, checklists, procedures, and techniques, Blue Water Ditching is the first of its kind to prepare crew members from preflight planning to emergency touchdown. Advances in modern aircraft have greatly decreased the chances of this type of disaster over the past seventy years. While the odds are remote, the air crew is the last line of defense when the disaster occurs. No pilot is too old or too experienced to learn a new lesson. With the information in Montgomery’s guide, every air crew can be properly trained in order to turn tragedy into triumph they ever be confronted with the necessity of making a ditching.
