"In the air transport business more than any other, the human element is everything. That big plane in front of the hangar is only as good as the man who flies it, and he is only as good as the people on the ground who work with him."

W. A. (Pat) Patterson, President United Airlines, quoted in the book 'High Horizons,' 1944.
