Crop Dusting May Be your Flying Ticket or paying for your next meal?

Friday, August 14th, 2009

I just read an article in the Wall Street Journal describing the increasing demand for crop dusting pilots or ‘aerial applicators’ as the are politically correctly called these days.  Anyhow it was the brilliance of a flight instructor slapping you on the back of the head telling you to get your head out of the airplane and get ahead of the airplane and fly.

This ‘Mr. Dusty Dowd’, (no relation to Matt Dowd in Eli Stone I am sure) is an example of things that used to be right in this country!  That is maybe he is harsh or like a military sergeant, but he wants you to learn right and be your best; not expect to be entitled or get things handed to you.

Check out the article for a chuckle and a good pilot story…bring back any memories of your flight instructor?  Let me know
