APG 148 – Good Aviators vs Great Aviators
Play

What sets a good aviator apart from a great aviator? One of many good questions asked of Bob Hoover by David Hartman at the Wright Memorial Dinner in Washington, DC last week.

111 years ago this week, two brothers succeeded in making history: Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight, on December 17, 1903.

An Air India A320 nearly misses hitting a UAV, active side stick controllers, and single-pilot cockpit ops are discussed as well.
