I worked as the graduate placement officer at an A&P school many years ago. The students would perform the annual inspections on my little Grumman Yankee; under the supervision of their properly licensed instructors, of course. Like now, general aviation was in a down cycle, and I remember nervously addressing the graduating class, explaining how I would be using my airplane to fly around, scouring every airport within range for companies that might be hiring. After an awkward pause, one of the guys muttered, "Geez. If you'd told us you were going to use it to find us jobs, we'd've fixed it better."
