  • Abstract

    This study is a part of an on-going series of academic discussions about common sense leadership and different professions. This qualitative study was conducted from March, 2015 through June, 2015 involving 284 participants that identified themselves as a licensed airline pilot. The conclusion of this study indicated that common sense correlates to three specific factors: (a) experience, (b) one’s knowledge and (c) a combination of professional experience and knowledge. The authors conclude that common sense is not defined by a single factor, but really focused on one’s training and proficiency as a professional airline pilot.
