Washington, DC, June 29, 2011 – National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen today forcefully challenged disparaging remarks about business aviation made by President Barack Obama during a June 29 White House press conference. "The president has inexplicably chosen to vilify and mischaracterize business aviation – an industry that is critical for citizens, companies and communities across the U.S., and one that can play a central role in the economic recovery he says he wants to promote."

“To say that you are an effective multitasker is the same as saying you are effective at doing things in a less effective way.” Dave Crenshaw, author of The Myth of Multitasking: How “Doing It All” Gets Nothing Done I received an email the other day from a company that was looking for a DOM for its Part 135 operation. Towards the end of the job announcement it read, “Applicant must demonstrate the ability to multi-task.”

Mr. Escobar. I read your column in the Jan/Feb issue of D.O.M. and would like to add a thought or two. I learned of the NPRM concerning “actively engaged,” but declined to comment because I had brought the phrase “hold a current mechanic’s certificate” to the attention of my local FSDO on numerous occasions when they asked for suggestions for content in their IA renewal seminars, but was ignored.

Old Chinese proverb: “Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I will remember. Involve me and I will understand. Step back and I will act.” Look at the first part of each of those lines. Telling ain’t training. How many training sessions have you been through during which the instructor read the Power Point slides? Stab me in the eye with a sharp stick so I stay awake. How effective was that “training?” Show me. We are visual beings, so we absorb a lot of communication through our eyes.
