Ask quesLons!!! Industry Expert Comments QuesLon: If you could give only One piece of advice to a new (airman), what would it be? (Kevin Nelson – Founder Nelson AeroDynamiX, Corp.) Answer: Be a professional! If you don’t really know what that means, research it, look at other industries’ definiLons, other people’s definiLons; but become one! Be overtly professional and show your employers, or prospecLve employers, how deep it is set into you to be one. Don’t just walk and talk it; invest conLnually in being one. It takes a lot to be a professional, and its broad in scope.
