SOME MIL­LEN­NI­ALS SHOULDN’T FLY

Flying - - INBOX -

Whether or not mil­len­ni­als are lazy, feel en­ti­tled and have short at­ten­tion spans as you sug­gest, I be­lieve that any­one who fits that de­scrip­tion should not be a pi­lot, nor should we en­cour­age them to be­come a pi­lot. I sug­gest that the best train­ing would be to re­move all elec­tron­ics ex­cept for the com­mu­ni­ca­tion ra­dio and transpon­der, and while we’re at it, let’s re­move the engine as well. Our nephew flew glid­ers at the Air Force Acad­emy for years be­fore fly­ing pow­ered air­craft. He now flies F-16s. Fly­ing is enor­mously grat­i­fy­ing, but it is not mind­less en­ter­tain­ment.
