What you won’t find in the Regulations or in the Airman’s Information Manual
I am an old and not-very-bold pilot.
I very much enjoyed my career with the airline, but I don’t want to do it all over again.
Instead I would rather tell you, the young pilot just beginning his/her career, how our trade looks to me from way out there on the far end. I hope some of my observations will help you realize your potential, enjoy your work, and most of all – survive to tell the tale.
(Still a work in progress (December, 2011). I am writing from notes I made for an Instrument Flying Seminar.)
