If we put a series of LED lights along the length of the plane and turn them off and on to produce streaks of lights running from nose to tail, it will interrupt their visual cues and make the plane stand out from the background.

Plus they'll look way awesomer at night when flying over my house.

I don't think this is going to work because although these people are the top in their fields, it doesn't make them good teachers, which is important if you're paying $25,000 for a 10 day course.

The $25k experience is the 9-week course, not the 10-day. Then again, no one has said if they're going 5 days a week for the full 9 weeks or if it's a 2 or 3 day a week thing. Also, professing or lecturing != teaching. My college professors made sure to emphasize this a lot.

The absent ones are always at fault.
