I love data but it doesn't always tell the whole story.

I used to do IT management consulting and I collected a lot of hard data. However, that was not the complete story. There is a human element that factors into the equation. It's the soft data I got by looking around and talking to people thaat gave me the complete view of what was going on.

Similarly, I am looking forward to the subjective data from the guys who fly the props and give us their opinions - the soft data.

I think this matters because nobody does 3D at WOT for the entire flight, in fact WOT is a small percentage. Nope, not even at 5/6 throttle. I suspect the average is around 40-50%.

This sure is a very interesting discussion!

Bring on the pilots picks!
