Last week, we asked AVweb readers which trainees make the best airline pilots.
Once again, there was a lot of variation in your answers but the most popular choice among AVweb readers (accumulating 31% of your votes) was trainees with a mix of varied experience, simulator time, and classroom training. The second most popular choice (with 23%) was that nothing beats experience. To see the full breakdown, take a moment to answer the question yourself, and then you can view real-time results.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
Where's your money on the future of aviation fuel? Proposals are out there to make it from algae, biomass, corn and simply reworking petroleum to give useable unleaded avgas.
