The founders of one of the best-known flight training businesses say they are seeing a shift in the focus of people beginning flight training. In an interview with Aero-News Editor in Chief Jim Campbell at AirVenture 2018, John King said that more people are starting their flight training with the intention of going into an aviation career, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. King said that as they continue their training, they may realize that they don't want to work for a big company and be traveling all the time, but will fall in love with flying. Martha King said that the surge in interest in drones will have an overall positive impact on the general aviation community.
