Test Pilot

The Museum of Flight held an all volunteer meeting tonight.  After about 30 minutes of business, the main speaker was introduced.  He is Raymond P. Craig, Experimental Flight Test Pilot for Boeing.  He was the Test Pilot for the Museum’s newly acquired 787 #3.  Though much of the technical details and most of the acronyms were over my head, it was a interesting talk.  He is type rated on all production Boeing aircraft and he’s the chief Test Pilot for the 737.

Every 2 seconds, a 737 lands or takes off somewhere in the world!

His list:  easiest to fly is the 787; favorite is the 737; most fun is the A-4 F.
