On a flight from St. Louis to Kansas City, we were experiencing “moderate turbulence.” We knew this because a Southwest Airlines pilot was sitting in the aisle seat and weighed in on the degree of turbulence, based on his trained expertise. He shared the various levels of “chop” and “turbulence,” letting us know despite our impressions of the flight, it could get MUCH worse. He reassured us he had only seen EXTREME TURBULENCE once in his career.
That information helped make what seemed to be a VERY BUMPY flight much more tolerable.
Next time you’re in bumpy creative skies, look for an expert to help get your bearings, understand why you’re experiencing turbulence, and realize that even with EXTREME TURBULENCE your creative plane won’t break apart.
