    Or, it could be a part of a satellite orbital 'end of life' ? - or - a brownian motion producer - like a nice cup of tea ?

    BTW: the epaulettes are part of his YouTube brand. I think he making some good second income here. He's got merch! Maybe you should consider this....

    Skip to 16:50.

    He talks about how 1500 hours in a Cessna doesn't prepare you to fly a commercial aircraft any more than 250 hours, because the CTPL and type-specific training, including procedure, is what matters here(that 'BANG!' was 3WE's head exploding once and for all).

    He talks about how a pilot with 250 hours can be as proficient as a pilot with over 15000 hours (that other BANG! was BoeingBobby choking on his cigar).

    I really like this guy.
