I wrote a piece for General Aviation News this past week that seems to have raised some interest. It’s touched a nerve, kicked up some dust, gotten at least a few people off the couch and onto the Internet – and it’s resulted in a phone call or two as well.

The question is a simple one – how do we tell the good pilots from the not-so-good pilots? Is it even possible to establish a simple measuring stick that will work with all pilots from all walks of life, all the time. Personally, I doubt it. On an individual basis we all have a reason to care about the topic, though. After all – aviation establishes safety as its primary focus with everything else taking a back seat.

So here’s the piece I wrote. It’s called, Building a Better Yardstick.

Comment at will, as always.
