Refocus on Professionalism
"Flight Instructors have
the most influence on
the development of professionalism"
Dr. Ken Byrnes
Last week I was spent at NTAS 2017. The National Transportation Aviation Symposium was held in Daytona Beach at ERAU, where professionals came together to Enhance aviation. This year was focused on the pilot shortage.
The pilot shortage is real.
So is the concern
The concern is that the next generation of available pilots who are also millennials are carrying their stereotype into the job. The stories shared were amazing, and somewhat appalling. Could these behavioral issues be true?
Attitude is everything when you fly.
Professionalism is essential for the safety of the flight and the future of your jobs! Research says this develops at the instructor level.
To all the flight instructors who provide a positive foundation for our future generation our pilots, we thank you!
For all the future pilots who want to have a job flying airplanes, do not let the industry have another reason to remove the pilot and replace us with automation.
The Aviation Industry needs
Enjoy the Journey!
