Brief Description:

Human biases are patterns of reasoning that weigh the value of information according to pre-conceived beliefs. Biases present as a prejudice in favor or or against one thing, person, or group compared with another; often in a way considered to be unfair.

Plan Continuation Bias is a form of Confirmation Bias that features pressing on with a plan even though information that indicates the plan should be modified or abandoned is readily available. It appears stronger as one nears completion of the activity (e.g. nearing a destination).

Realistic pre-flight planning should objectively consider aircraft and pilot capabilities, route and weather challenges, and alternative destinations.

Periodic objective pilot performance assessments should be made in consultation with a Flight Instructor.

Objective in-flight “how-goes-it?” assessments should be made in order to inform decision making with respect to continuing, modifying, or abandoning the plan.
