Flying used to be a big deal. It was an extravagant method of travel, and people would dress up for their trip. Airlines served gourmet foods, gave away travel packs, and you had plenty of legroom.
Not so much, these days. Pampering is still available if you want to shell out for First Class or hire a private plane, but that’s a lot of money. Most people get a cheap ticket and cram into Economy seating, fighting over the armrest and trying to make a tiny pack of peanuts last for the whole trip.
But it’s still amazing.
In just a few hours, you can be in a completely different country. A little more than half a day will put you literally on the opposite side of the planet. That’s worth some temporary discomfort. And we wouldn’t be able to do any of it without pilots.
December 7 is World Civil Aviation Day, so if you’re a pilot, or know one, these pilot mugs make great gifts!
If you’re lucky, you’re one of the three.
2. Overcoming Obstacles
Money is probably the biggest, but reality hits the hardest. Literally and figuratively.
Or 1.6 kilometres for our metric friends. Where would you like to go today?
4. Need One to Have the Other
There’s that reality mentioned in #2 above. This is why being a pilot is awesome.
5. Full Tank
Being awake and alert is a very good thing for a pilot.
