CONF iture;
Please...the question is not "either / or"; - we are all much more sophisticated and knowledgable about our craft than that.

There is salesmanship mixed with marketing from airplane makers and everyone else, and then there is the reality of an airplane's design which must be trained, learnt, and understood well.

For me, any pilot who would take the salesmans' view of the airplane's capabilities isn't skeptical enough to learn what the airplane is really about and may end up to be naive as to what it's capabilities are when the chips are down.
