Celebrate today – 115 years after the first powered flight by the Wright brothers on 17 December 1903.
Aviation disrupted & transformed the world over the past 115 years as much as the industrial revolution, computers, big data and the internet has just disrupted it.
The world is changing today faster than ever before. Opportunities abound. The future disruptors are:
- 3d printing,
- deep learning,
- gene manipulation,
- sentient robots,
- transport and possibly
- dark matter/energy.
When the winds of change blow, some people build walls, others build windmills.
Disrupt yourself and keep control rather than let others disrupt you and you have no control. The future belongs to the bold. Change is good and only those who adapt, survive. If you have doubts then remember – the world is a better place today than ever before in our history, yet few people know this. (Read Factfulness by Hans Rosling).
So, let aviation be your exemplar example of positive effects of disruption and change. Don’t be afraid of changing – be afraid of not changing.
Celebrate today. Be intrepid and build windmills.
Now it’s your turn to FLY!
