Default Maskless A action jobs?

If masks are the future of 121 passenger airlines I need a change of work. Are there any jobs for experienced pilots where you can not wear a damn muzzle, or at least wear it less?

I thought of Atlas, ATI or whatever, most of those guys probably dont give a **** about masks, but they deadhead you on the passenger carriers, and X hours in the passenger cabin being forced to wear the damn things sounds like exquisite hell.

Only other stuff I can think of would be single-pilot pipeline flying or whatever that doesnít pay anything. Maybe corporate if the customer doesnít care about masks?

The problem isnít in the cockpit itís the airport and deadheading. I havenít worn a mask once in the cockpit during this pandemic unless the FAs are giving us a break..

I absolutely hear you. If I were in the position of the FAís, having to not only muzzle all day, but be a prick to others who want to breathe, Iím pretty sure Iíd have quit by now.
Part of me thinks the mask nazis will never let up, but my optimistic side hopes the latest mask extension to September 13 is the last gasp of mind control.
Hopefully, fingers crossed, the optimism is rooted in reality.
Then I see folks double masked on the running trail and I agree with you that the muzzles are forever.
God help us all if the lefties continue in power.

Aerial application. But you would have to upgrade the mask to a full on respirator sometimes. Aerial mapping? Become a drone operator and take pictures for people? Ameriflight or something like that?

Corporate is definitely the real answer here. The dude/business who just bought the $20MM jet doesnít give a single solitary frick about masks, and thatís probably why he bought the jet.

I agree but Part 135 and FBOís still have the mask requirement. Wether they are being followed or enforced is a whole other question..
