Flight Profile Week #1 - Art Tomassetti, Test Pilot

Better Be Lucky When You're Not Good - We have all heard and perhaps sometimes used the phrased I’d rather be lucky than good.  But in the business of aviation good is a prerequisite and luck is hard to plan for.  Using a aviation "close call" as a case study this talk looks at the difference between luck and skill.
