How would you define a “professional?” Is it someone who holds an advanced degree? Or is it more of an attitude, a state of mind, someone who maintains a radar lock on excellence in performance despite obstacles?

Could it be? After nearly five years, is there really an actual, official, signed and authorized FAA funding bill, not simply another extension?
