10 Misconceptions about Being a Pilot - by a Pilot's Wife

Pilot taking a quick nap
I'm a girl and I’ll admit it, I wasn’t really into my husband the first time I met him at a club. But then he told me he was a pilot, and I was like, “Hello!”.

Brilliant complaint letter from Ryanair pax

The Bose® A20™ Aviation Headset, another leap in ANR.

I’ve owned the Bose X for about 5 years, 400 hours. I love them. But I longed for better performance and more features – like bluetooth for getting IFR clearances at my non-towered field.

Iedereen kent wel ergens iemand die er bij betrokken was. Het gevaar is om het te veel op jezelf te betrekken, een menselijke reflex. Het te veel geforceerd van je afzetten van een dergelijke gebeurtenis komt dan mogelijk (te) koel over op de omgeving terwijl het meestal uit zelfbescherming is.
