Pilot Progression

Returning from a conference in Melbourne, I sat next to a pilot on the flight.

While I cannot remember much of the information presented at the conference, what I learned from the pilot has had a massive impact on the way I’ve approached my career.

One of the topics we discussed was the training and progression of a pilot.

For the sake of brevity, a pilot starts as a:

DOMESTIC Co-Pilot.

They progress to:

INTERNATIONAL Co-Pilot.

The next step is:

DOMESTIC Captain.

And obviously the final progression is:

INTERNATIONAL Captain.

Reflect on this.

Reflect on the non-linearity.

Reflect on the balance between exposure and protection.

Reflect how Sport often gets this so wrong.

Reflect on how this can apply to your situation?

As always, I love your replies so keep them coming.
