Welcome to The Iconoclastic Aviators Blog!

Hi!
Welcome to the newest aviation blog on the internet. We have tried to make our posts of interest to pilots of various experience levels. The main purpose of the Blog is to encourage thoughtful pilots an opportunity to express them here. The subjects have been selected to inspire discussions both pro and con.

If you feel the time you spent here is of value to you, please let other pilots know about it. The more participants we have, the better!

I had an initial list of approximately 100 e-mail addresses and have sent an e-mail invitation to each of them. I just sent the last e-mail an hour ago. (Thursday, April 8, 2010)

Here is a list as of today (April 8, 2010) of all 43 posts currently on the Blog.
I would suggest taking a look at this list and choosing which posts you want to view from the Blog Archive just to the left side of this note first.

  1. I received this from my friend David Velez:
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/iconoclast
    An iconoclast (noun) is someone who performs iconoclasm — destruction of religious symbols, or, by extension, established dogma or conventions.

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/iconoclastic
    iconoclastic (adjective)
    1 : a person who destroys religious images or opposes their veneration
    2 : a person who attacks settled beliefs or institutions

    Dick Siano is an iconoclast, because he is an iconoclastic pilot.
