CROSSVILLE, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- Trade-A-Plane recently conducted a survey of aircraft owners to gain insight and information on their demographics. "Since 1937, Trade-A-Plane has served General Aviation as the first choice among active buyers and sellers," said Cosby Stone, publisher. "We are now a fourth-generation family business and our roots go deep in aviation." Now in its 77th year of publication, it's obvious they are doing something right.

In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle?
