Discover Things: Interesting Stuff & History

Random news, knowledge things in the aviation world which we thought you might like to know about

  • Here’s a post about Higher Altitude Airspace just because we find it interesting and thought you might too.
  • We watched ‘Plane’ starring Gerard Butler. We rate it 6/10 for ‘edge of the seat action’ but more importantly 10/10 for making us laugh (and yell!) at the total inaccuracy of all the aviation scenes.
  • We read ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’ by Daniel Kahneman and have definitely changed how we make decisions. A good one if you’re thinking about CRM stuff like decision making and biases.
