Nice one, Para. Except those of us in corporate aviation will have to live down the headlines. He is, unfortunately, not alone in general aviation. I had a boss who believed that it was dangerous to climb at V2+10 and the plane needed to be rapidly accelerated to climb speed. Even rotated to about 5 degrees and "let the plane fly off". Climb gradient didn't enter into his procedure, he could see the obstacles.
