When I heard of the email correspondence between Dr. Foster and Professor Smith, I approached them with the proposal to publish their dialogue about Professor Smith's piece on the demise of collegiate aviation programs Smith (2002, p. 13-14). I felt this is a good example of how the Forum encourages collegial discussion, debate and helpful interaction. The discussion is interesting regarding the schism between teaching ideals and the realities of traditional academic programs. Dr. Foster's questions are in regular font. Professor Smith's replies are italicized. Both have a summary at the end. (Ed.)
