A few words of wisdom from the past and a few personal thoughts, from yours truly, to start the new week—-take care, fly safe, and thanks for allowing me to be a part of your week.
“You learn to build your roads on today, because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.”
I have been flying for thirty years and I have yet to see the forecasted pilot shortage that the experts predict every five years. I have seen union contracts cancelled, pension plans dissolved, the number of Legacy Carriers reduced to six, and aircrew working for less money than they would make working full time flipping burgers.
So, what does the future hold for aviation professionals and what is the best plan for you?
