Is it scary for you to think that I may be YOUR pilot one day?

    Here’s the scenario...

    It’s 5 - 7 years from today. You’ve just printed out your boarding pass for your flight home. You’ve just been groped by a TSA agent and made it to your gate. The gate agent announces over the intercom that boarding is beginning, so be ready with your boarding pass in hand. You can’t afford to fly business or first class, so you’ll be sinching your belt extra tight to allow yourself to squeeze into that 12” economy seat in the far aft compartment of the aircraft. As you follow the crowd down the jet bridge and enter the cabin of the aircraft, you’re greeted by a cute flight attendant who welcomes you aboard. Just as you begin to turn down the aisle to find your seat, a head pops out from the flight deck and says ‘Hey, I’m @Ryanb and I’m your pilot today...welcome aboard!’


    Luckily this frightens you enough that you wake up only to find that it’s just a dream.. whew! Good thing, because that would be a nightmare!

    Sorry, I knew your scenario was all a dream as soon as you mentioned a cute flight attendant.

    I would have answered sooner, but I was watching The Big Bang Theory.

    No, I am a CFI. You would not scare me. So sorry to disappoint. @EdFred would scare me. LOL

    Wouldn’t scare me. I would be ready to take over for you, if things started going bad. Flying an airliner isn’t fundamentally different than flying a 172, is it? :D

    Hopefully by then you'll be 5-7 years older and wiser, so not worried. :D

    That last cute flight attendant was back when they were called stewardesses.

    I will have prayed and repented for my sins, so I will be ready to die. Then I get thoroughly drunk at the airport Applebee's and I won't care if you fly me into the closest mountain.

    I’d expect free peanuts AND pretzels from you for the mental anguish. I’ll be in the back section with the goats and chickens, next to the lav. What country was this dream of yours in again?

    C'mon now. Fess up. You're thinking about getting an ATP and doing it, aren't you?

    Since it was all a dream, it was a cute Vietnamese gal. In real life, you might not get so lucky.
    Yup. I just wanted to test the waters to see how folks might react when they see me in the captain’s chair.

    What, 60 year-olds can be cute. I'm 66 so maybe I'm biased.

    Us millennials call those cougars. They do exist, but they’re few and far between.

    I've flown a few times with an FA that's been at the company for over 40 years - she's 60+ and still looks great. She's Asian, so of course she looks significantly younger than she is. ;) Still has a phenomenal attitude and is a joy to fly with, so I always have a twinge of guilt when I make dickish posts about older FAs, but unfortunately she's in the minority.

    I probably knock the average age demographic down about 30 years or so.

    Amazing how quick one person’s dream becomes another person’s nightmare.
