Writing this while on a plane back from Dallas after a busy and eventful Heli-Expo, I’m finally getting the chance to finish a thought that struck me early on during the non-stop four-day event.

Entrsom’s Jerry Mullins (shown here at the 2011 Forum) and MD Helicopters’ Lynn Tilton were the only two CEOs at the CEO Forum. This year’s CEO Forum was shunned by most of the leading CEOs—I guess they were too busy with the ‘grin and grip’ duties with the flurry of new orders (mostly saved to announce at the show) to come and make the forum what it should be, a...

Looking at life from the perspective of unchastened youth, I can recall an unflinching belief that all things were imminently achievable. The possibility of penalties for failure did not show up for me at the time on any imaginable radar screen. Having risen above all apparent peers with a flying hobby beginning in high...
