Default Could the Pilot Shortage Ruin Thanksgiving?

Pilots are in demand. So are Thanksgiving Day flights. What will happen?
Read our article. Thoughts?

I’ll be at work this Thanksgiving, May even swing through the ‘free’ turkey feed in the cafeteria.

Someone’s gotta work.

The 1500 hours are not "training hours", they are just a flight time requirement to get an Airline Transport License.

A pilot can and most likely will be working a job that pays him to fly while accumulating those 1500 hours.

As to the rest of the article, it is pretty off base.
