That ‘solo’ flight

Pilot - - SPECIAL FEATURE - Mike Flynn

Many thanks for be­ing brave enough to ad­dress the TC-T is­sue.

I left my copy of Pi­lot un­opened for sev­eral hours to­day think­ing it would be the same old stuff. How­ever, your hon­est and bal­anced edi­to­rial has re­stored my con­fi­dence in mag­a­zine ed­i­tors. Many month­lies are lit­tle more than ad­ver­to­rial and my view is they would in­crease sales by be­ing braver in their con­tent.

As LAA CEO Steve Slater is one of your colum­nists is there any chance you can get that or­gan­i­sa­tion to look again at the Bill Wood­ham award? In my view the best ap­proach is to bal­lot the mem­bers.

PPRUNE has done a won­der­ful job in al­low­ing the thread to run and de­velop. As you will no doubt have seen, I have copied your edi­to­rial on to the site.

I have spent most of my life work­ing for the BBC and Reuters and there was no way I could bury my head in the sand on this one.
