Has anyone here ever
1. Gotten/tried to get a pilot certification (USA or anywhere else)?
2. Worked on UX for general or commercial aviation?
3. Been interested in doing either of these things?
I ask because I'm investigating/pitching a project at work to investigate the barriers to entry in General Aviation (where normal people fly small airplanes from/to small airports). Most people in aviation (engineers, that is) see the problem as they see all problems: to be solved by technology, and technology alone, but I would like to question this.
So have you?
