Today’s Flight Plan
The epic battles, the last second saves, the crazy things we’d never do as real pilots — this is aviation/astronautics in the Galaxy of Star Wars. What can we learn from our flying friends from a Galaxy… far, far away?
In this episode I’ll share 9 lessons we can learn from the pilots, situations and attitudes of Star Wars.
We’ll answer questions like:
- How did Poh learn to fly all those fighters, including the TIE Fighter?
- How do we get a mechanic as good as a droid?
- Are we all natural born flyers like Rey (or Anakin)?
- How to keep a straight face like a TIE Fighter Pilot, even in the most intense situations.
- Taking pride in our aircraft like Han takes pride in his Millennium Falcon.
- Finding an awesome flying buddy like Chewbacca.
- Why the best pilots in the Galaxy seem to fly the worst ships.
- How to not rush a preflight like the Rebel/Resistance pilots.
- Not losing your cool even when all seems lost, like when your planet is about to be destroyed by another object from space.
