Decision making along the way
Aeronautical decision-making (ADM) is essentially the mental process of gathering and evaluating information pertinent to a flight; listing the options and their attendant risks; and then choosing the best alternatives. It is an iterative process due to the nature of the changing variables inherent in flight. ADM is often a relatively simple and subliminal process if we are out for that $100 hamburger on a beautiful Saturday morning. However, when you have a long cross-country and weather ahead of you (and some commitments on the other end), it takes on a far greater significance.
