Being in the Air Force myself I really appreciated John Nance’s ending story about his time flying C-141’s. I can appreciate the A1C’s fear in speaking up against a Lt Col, especially since he has no actual flying experience. Co-pilots in the AF constantly struggle with correcting senior officers during flight. Like surgeons they to embrace the god-like aura and often think they are above criticism. I agree with John in that the AF is making a great commitment towards true leaders. They’ve also started 360 feedback which is a way for these senior pilots to get feedback from everyone they fly with.
