It is summer and people are vacationing. Some will drive hundreds of miles, get out of the car, stand by the car and take a picture while others will simply go visit family and friends. Still others will get on a plane and fly through the open skies. If you are one of those who will fly (by the way, I love flying) have you ever given thought to the pilotâs job? He has but one â Get his passengers safely to their destination. Through bright sunshine, clouds or thunderstorms the pilotâs responsibility never changes â get you to your destination safely.
