Solo Recognition - April
The traditional removal of a new pilot's shirt tail is a sign of the instructor's new confidence in his student. In the days of tandem trainers, the instructor would tug at the student’s shirt tail whenever he was getting himself into trouble. After the first solo, the new pilot is competent in the air and does not need such a safety device. This tradition has been modernised at 43 by cutting ties instead of shirt tails at our monthly Solo parties.
Pilots Who Should Not Be A Pilot

Aviation is one of those disciplines where a few weeks is a long time and a lot has been said and speculated around the recent tragedy where a German Wings Co-Pilot allegedly intentionally killed all his passengers. This article I thought might be a good one to demonstrate how complex and potentially fatal having the wrong guy in a pilot crew situation might be.
