To All: I’ve noticed that there is a very wide range of aviation knowledge on these forums. There are people who don’t yet know what VFR means all the way through years and years in ATC or piloting.
Might I suggest that when you answer a question based on expert knowledge, especially if its something not generally known or understood by most others, that you mention your credentials or source of information or background or something to lend credibility. It would be helpful and minimize readers wondering if you’ve flipped your lid or really know what your are talking about. Not for every post, mind you, but sometimes if you’re correcting something someone else was mistaken on, it would be helpful to know more about why you think you’re right.
I’m sure most of us flip-flopped on the corrections above wondering who was correct. I, for one, really appreciate the information from advanced aviation experts, but it’s sometimes really hard to figure out who they are.
Just a thought,
BTaylor, CSEL/IA, AGI-A and soon CFI-A
(those who know that those letters mean will understand what I’m talking about [and probably that you out-rank me], and those who don’t will think I’m one of the crack-pots anyway )
