    Why your Pilot's Certificate is not a "License"

    Ever wonder why your pilot’s “license” is really a pilot’s “certificate?” Or did you even know (or care)? One of the most common sayings in aviation is that your pilot certificate is a license to learn, and your non-flying friends and family members will always think of that precious bit of...
