MOJAVE AIR & SPACE PORT: The Spirit of the Test Pilot
"Test pilots are today, and always have been since a hundred years ago in the early days of aviation, a different breed. They're risk takers, they're willing to go into environments where there is a certain amount of unknown, and literally test the edge of the envelope, and the fact that they are willing to do so is what sets them apart."- Jay Gibson
