Basics of Leadership
According to the Retired Major General Perry Smith, a leader is the one who makes a difference in a large and complex organization and leads people in that organization. The essay describes the failed leadership which did not meet the requirements for a command climate confronted with evidence that includes deviation from regulations and poor commands. There are several signs of these failures in commands but the case studied was Czar52 crash (Hymowitz, Carol, 2004). An interrogation into this account by AFB demonstrates numerous examples of leadership failure in senior wing aviator. This accident happened on June24, 1994 when Czar52 was practicing manoeuvres an upcoming show. The profile planned by the aircrew at wing commander level exceeded the regulatory limitations grossly. When preparing for the land after the end of practice session, they were supposed to perform a go-around session since there was another aircraft at the runaway. The crew tried to take left turn at the mid-field. The aircraft crashed while in approximately half way through the turn and there were no survivors at all from the aircrew. All these accidents are devastating and can be prevented with a little bit of caution (Lawrence, Paul R., & Nohria, Nitin, 2002). The plane crash was primarily a result of poor airmanship of the pilot. The leadership and the supervision at the time of accident lacked the qualities of enforcement of the rules and regulations. There was considerable evidence of the poor airmanship over three years of time.
