*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***

Last week, AVweb asked our readers which light aircraft layout they'd prefer, given their druthers.

Out of curiosity, we separated the pilots with more than 300 hours from those with less experience and you know what we found out?  Experience didn't have much of an impact on your preference.

40% of total respondents preferred a traditional yoke with throttles on the right, while slightly fewer readers (39% of the total respondents) preferred a stick with throttles on the left.

To round out the numbers, 18% of respondents opted for a stick with throttles on the right, while only 2% of you chose a traditional yoke with throttles on the left.

As an interesting aside, the biggest gulf between less experienced pilots (fewer than 300 hours) and more experienced pilots (more than 300 hours) occurred in our numbers for a stick control with throttles on the left.

*** THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***

Anonymously honest?

This week, AVweb wants to know if you've ever partaken of alcohol before taking a flight.  Have you ever had an alcoholic beverage or any portion of an alcoholic beverage before acting as pilot in command?

(Please sit this one out if you've ever stolen a plane and taken it for a joy ride under the influence of alcohol.)
