A few words of wisdom from the past to start the new week—-take care, fly safe, and thanks for allowing me to be a part of your week.
Whenever we talk about a pilot who has been killed in a accident, we should all keep one thing in mind.
He called upon the sum of all his knowledge and made a judgment. He believed in it so strongly that he knowingly bet his life on it.
That his judgment was faulty is a tragedy and not stupidity.
Every instructor, supervisor, and contemporary who ever spoke to him had an opportunity to influence his judgment, so a little bit of all of us goes with every pilot we lose.
