A Small Business Solutions column by Mitch Free on TheStreet.com compares what it takes to earn a pilot’s license with starting a business. He says:
Flying takes intense preparation and focus. You have to plan the route, check the weather, maintain airspeed, keep the wings level, avoid stalls, fly by the instruments in reduced visibility and always maintain clear, concise communication. Sounds a lot like running a successful business. I’m not the first to think of this parallel.
Free notes that the other thing he learned while pursuing his passion is which companies in aviation are taking the lead and positioning themselves for future success. Find out which companies he focuses on here.
