Pilot/columnist Justin Schlechter examines what might have happened in the cockpit over the Atlantic on June 1st, 2009.
Do you think the pilot is to blame when your flight hits turbulence or is delayed? Think again.
Some fortunate pilots get the opportunity to live out their inner Maverick in a transport jet. Sometimes, it’s done with prior practice and planning; sometimes, not so much.
Blaring headlines of the First Lady’s supposed brush with death were hysterically overhyped, says this airline pilot.
Few stop to think about what their flight crew is doing after they disembark at the end of their journey. Millions tune-in to watch the exciting lives of pilots and flight attendants in their free time on TV. But what really goes on?
Out of sight and out of mind is such an easy mindset to fall into, but down a winding jetway, a flight crew sits in the front of a widebody airliner and truly feels badly for the delays that mother nature is throwing at their customers this cold wintry night.
