Decide or die: The use of EDP in difficult weather conditions
from By Mark Huber
For a number of years now, the National EMS Pilots Association has been promoting an idea its calls the Enroute Decision Point, or EDP for short. I prefer to call it the "enroute death point" — because if you fly past it, that could easily be your fate. It's a really simple idea that any pilot can relate to because we've all done it on marginal weather flights. As we approach the soup, we slow down and drop lower. It's stupid. It's wrong. And any pilot who tells you he hasn't done it is a liar.
