Let's Go Flying: A Year of Pilot Reports, In Video

This year Aviation Week's chief test pilot, Fred George, buckled up in the left seat of a number of business jets, including Gulfstream's G650, Dassault's Falcon 2000S and Bombardier's Learjet 75. 
Fred is senior editor for Business & Commercial Aviation magazine, and in addition to flying business jets, he was also the first aviation journalist to fly Boeing's 787 and the Airbus Military A400M airlifter. 
Here's a roundup of Fred's pilot report videos, all flown in 2013.
