    Airline Pilots Feeling "Rusty"

    Not really the best headline you want to see.

    Commercial pilots blame pandemic downtime for in-flight mistakes
    https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/p...ime/index.html

    One of the most serious issues identified in the reports was a plane that landed without permission from air traffic controllers. The pilots of that flight were overwhelmed with turbulence and other distractions while approaching the airport, one of the pilots wrote, and they "forgot to obtain the landing clearance."
    "Since COVID-19 breakout, I was not flying as frequently as before," that pilot wrote. "I believe this was factored into this incident."
    Another side-effect of the hysteria.
    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    Seems like a problem that free money to the airlines can solve.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.
