Your Retirement Flight Plan

I recently attended an air show in Camarillo, California. Between the F18 zooming by at over 700 mph, the WW2 bombing simulations and plane formation aerobatics – it was an amazing experience.

What caught my ear was the announcement made before the show started, stating that every single maneuver had been carefully planned; each plane knew exactly when to take off, each turn and twist and loop was meticulously choreographed, and so was the landing. Nothing happened by accident because safety was the utmost goal, and the only way to achieve safety is to carefully plan every single step.

Retirement planning is no different. You don’t want to fly by the seat of your pants (to stick with the aeronautics theme). Let’s discuss.
