What is "aviation"?

Post by jan_olieslagers » 14 Nov 2019, 19:55

This website and forum so frantically claiming to be about "aviation", I have more than once questioned how the "aviation" bit was to be interpreted. Here's some extra food for thought, gratefully copied from the - ever retrospective! - chickenwingscomics.com :
See, this is the stuff they don’t tell you in flight school! Aviation isn’t just about flying, being in the air, and telling colorful stories about the wild blue yonder.
As it turns out, it also involves a lot of training, updating numerous records, seemingly endless online classes about all sorts of things, certificate upkeep and renewals, and too much paperwork that looks like it isn’t even remotely related to flying.
Blessed be these Strasser brothers for their ceaseless contributions to aviation, and to our alther self-criticism!
