This Week's Question | Previous Week's Answers


Time magazine recently reported that 49% of professional pilots are "very happy" with their jobs.  Last week, we were curious how that figure matches up to the AVweb readership population.

While our readership may be slightly less joyful than the pilots Time interviewed, you're a pretty happy bunch.  One in four respondents called flying a dream job, but another one-and-a-half of you (39% of the total responses) said there were things you'd like to improve (like the pay or benefits).

The EAA is recommending a new class of kitbuilt aircraft where builders might not have to complete a strict "51%" of the process on their own.

Do you think this is a good idea?
