I sometimes want to stress a technique as something that would be described as professional. In my aviation scenario, I wanted to describe how keeping radio communication parsimonious and brief is just being professional. (Because you don't want to tie up the frequency for others who are waiting to communicate)
I was unsatisfied with the word choice, however, because I think it's a virtue one should strive for regardless of any world in which pilots are paid to fly. (i.e. professionals and potentially equally-skilled amateurs) Is there any word that would be useful in such a scenario that implies the same sense of attention to detail and dispassionate pride for a craft?
