It's an odd kind of power. A 16th century king had the power to kill. Well, so do you…. But…different. The skies are linked—one bad pilot can ruin the day for a whole lotta innocent people. There's a vibe when passengers load that they are counting on you to get them safely to their gramma's, their business trip, or just back home to their dog. So your power is the power of reliance, trust, belief.
But since you are teaching the next generation of pilots, your power is magnified as they take the skills you taught them and pass along those habits to others. And more importantly, you are getting that generation ready for The Jetsons with the flying cars and all that stuff. Jane! Judy! Astro! Etc….
