AVweb's Question of the Week ...
*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***
Last week, AVweb asked readers if they were concerned about having a mid-air collision.
By and large, our readers feel that mid-air collisions are just one of many dangers they must guard against. 57% of our readership were happy to lump this danger in with all the other potential hazards of flying a plane.
28% of respondents, however, were willing to rank a mid-air collision as one of their "top five" concerns. And another 7% went as far as saying it's their greatest flying fear.
Only 1% of readers confessed that mid-air collisions are something they never think about. And another 1% subscribe to the notion that a mid-air collision is more a matter of fate than pilot control and preparation.
The final 5% of our readership reminded us that they sky is a big place and that we're all playing a numbers game (that thankfully skews in our favor) when we share it with other planes.
*** THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
This week, AVweb wants to know how much attention to pay to hypoxia in the cockpit. Sure, it depends a lot on the performance of the aircraft — but it depends just as much on the performance of the pilot. And some of the contributing factors are well out of your control.
