    airline career/girlfriend/wife

    Not to highjack Superjew thread here is a little blurb on the subject, not all mine, lots of comments gathered on the planet and beyond...

    A good percentage of men dream of an Airline Job ?
    Why do (most) women put a lid on the whole idea ?

    According to surveys !! (lol)

    THEY ARE RIGHT:

    1)They feel it is dangerous and care for their companion

    (but they do not mind to let him loose on highways going to work each morning where the statistics show a terrible death toll, or climb the ladder to get the cat, or travel by air for a job that bores him to death)

    2) They know all these cockpit stories about sexy crew and the "fatal" attraction of an impeccable uniform on other ladies!
    (Of course, at the office, the female "crew" are far less attractive and all these trips on Company business are totally safe)

    THEY ARE WRONG:

    1) Statistics show that Airline travel is as safe or safer than rail transport

    2) men are men

    3) An airline Pilot spends more time at home than a corporate tycoon, as he works for a number of days and has blocked periods of rest after.

    4) Conversly, he is out of home for days in a row, which means that his loved half does not have to deal with a totally wiped out human being, five evenings per week, due to daily work and commuting stress.

    5)An airline Pilot makes a heck of a good income.

    6) The Family can travel to "Palma" or Easter Iland for peanuts!

    Gents, remember that, when an irrestible pair of .... ( blue eyes) puts your airline career at risk !!!

    BTW men, still according to reputable statistics, have apparently no problem dating a female pilot knowing 1,2,3,4,5,6 above
    lol

    I gave you a 'thanks' for this, but I need to qualify just in case my wonderful wife were to ever see this

    I would recommend that if you are to ever pursue a very involved career, such as being a pilot, it would be best to get your education and job first if at all possible. However, love just sometimes gets in the way, and that's life. At 33, I have had a wonderful life so far, but as they say, hindsight is 20-20 and I do wish that I knew then what I know now. Especially the fact that if back when I was in my early 20's, I knew how passionate I would become about aviation, then I would have whole-heartedly pursued it as a career. I have the aviation degree, but not the job. Folks said, 'Join the military then and let them pay for your aviation training...' and I said 'no thanks' at the time. Boy do I regret that some days!
