Two weeks into the search for Steve Fossett,
the aviation community is still doing all it can to find the missing
adventurer, despite increasing difficulties in navigating the terrain
and gathering new leads.
Last week, we asked what AVweb readers thought of the massive
search that's been conducted on Fossett's behalf. We received
quite a bit of
on the subject, and 38% of those who responded to our poll thought
that Fossett shouldn't have gotten any more attention than any other
pilot who was lost or missing.

participated in this poll.)
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
aggressively recruiting astronauts for their 2009 graduating class,
we thought it might be a good time to ask AVweb readers what
constitutes "the right stuff" these days and whether it should always
include a pilot's license.
