What’s Judgment?

[Ref Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, FAA-H-8083-25B G-17, 2-3]

Judgment can be defined as the mental process of recognizing and analyzing all pertinent information in a particular situation, a rational evaluation of alternative actions in response to it, and a timely decision on which action to take.

Good judgment can be taught and increases with experience through accident-free flight hours.

Pilots with good judgment tend to recognise and analyse all pertinent information by using a rational evaluation.
