Tom Wolfe's book The Right Stuf portrayed in- dividuals having superior survival skill. The "right stuf," as it is known, is made up of a strategic method of thinking.

This seminar asks and answers the following questons: Who do you fy for (even if you're not a commercial pilot) and why this is im- portant? What's the most expensive airplane you've ever fown and why should cost never mater to you? When will you make the most important in-fight decisions you'll ever make in an airplane? On the ground? In the air? What is your greatest strength as a person and why this is also your greatest weakness? What's the diference between you (a safe pilot today) and another pilot who bends an airplane on any given day?
