As a pilot, we never want to think about some of the scenarios we could end up in if things don’t go as planned but spending a night in the wilderness because of weather or worse is a possibility and being prepared is the key to surviving the event or not.
I have carried a small, personal survival kit since my early days as a pilot after attending an aviaiton survial course. Just a few simple items can make a huge difference if you were to become stranded. Below is a list of some of the things I own or I recommend.
