Are you a ‘real’ pilot?

According to “experts” — whoever they may be — “real pilots” only fly taildraggers, don’t use GPS, and don’t cancel flights. But Air Facts blogger John Zimmerman says he has a different definition of a real pilot. “It starts with someone who is smart enough to stay alive while flying, and it ends with someone who has fun doing it.” See his list of 10 Things Real Pilots Do here.

    A very good article. I just try to remember that we are all in this together to keep the aviation industry going.
