Actually, the whole sky.
It would be nice to have a private plane or to at least lease one when needed. But probably almost all of that is not needed or ego.
And I think there is a real ego thing when it comes to flying and the sky. Certainly it applies if you’re flying a $1 billion fighter jet, and it probably applies too to flying a 777. Maybe it even trickles down to people flying single-engine Cessnas. It is certainly present in the I-can-beat-the-safety delusion.
NextGen is one of those things you don’t really know about unless it affects you.
What a job. Flying from one town to the next and all along the way disturbing people. Wake up tomorrow and do it again.
