I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.
I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know.

After seeing a program about a lifecoach trying to find the time to get his pilot’s license I was struck by an in escapable fact: Aspiring pilots can flight solo without a license based on the opinion of their flight instructor. In fact it is a requirement that an aspiring pilot have experience flying alone before being able to get a pilot’s license.
This is naturally unthinkable when it comes to driving a car, yet an aspiring pilot without a license can. As I was musing on this I created a risk matrix.
What I see as one of the main reasons that a aspiring pilot would be allowed to fly solo is simply: Aviation accidents cause less collatoral damage. And there is less chance of another pilot causing an accident.
World66 sent round a list of telltale signs you travel too much. My favorite was:
When you wake up from a deep sleep during a red-eye and you have no idea where you are, where you are going, and comfortably fall back to sleep knowing that you will figure it out when you land.
