...and like the 3 previous years, I bailed on it after about 30 minutes.

Am I the only one here with so little patience for that particular survey? I always start with good intentions and hope some day I'll make it to the end of the survey before I close the browser.

The information they gather does have merit, but they are leaving a lot on the table simply because it is so long, which goes against many rules of creating effective surveys.

One in particular, asks many questions around ATC. Like... dozens of questions.

Then, they ask the question "Do you use ATC?"

^^^ Should have led with that question first.

Kinda agree, some questions are asked repeatedly. I did go through the whole survey but damn it was long.

Removing all the repeated questions would help a lot. When you get the same question, in another form, for the third time you kinda of want to through it away [emoji23]

However I'm very curious of the results.

Yes - We could poke all sorts of wholes in this one. Especially the spelling and grammar errors. But the end result is great and I am glad someone is taking an interest in the community.

I completed the survey and agree that it is way too long.

Another issue is that the scope is self-fulfilling. That is, it left little room to express opinions beyond the multiple choice answers. More specifically, the cockpit builder community was essentially overlooked completely, and I found it difficult to get a word in. Very little reference to hardware components in general.  Plenty of software companies etc were referenced, but no hardware companies let alone cockpit companies.  "Cockpitbuilders.com" was not even listed as a pick possibility in the online section.  Had to write it in.

So we get ignored again.
