So I guess zooming out of the parking lot in my convertable wearing my leather flying jacket is likewise un-cool? Nah, can't be. A pilot zooming around in a convertible wearing a leather jacket is pretty close to defining cool.

I can see the blaring music part as being tool-ish though. That jerk would be mortally offended if I stuffed a set of speakers turned up to 11 playing mozart or beethoven next to him, not sure why he thinks anyone wants to hear the garbage he listens to. And by definition, anything playing on anyone else's radio is garbage

Meeting... in the ops area... Yea. Hmm. Riiiiight. You talking ETOPS or... nevermind I've got a walkaround to do and a couple dozen buttons to push while the CA reads the MEL, be happy if I remember to grab a new garbage bag. I think most captains I've flown with are happiest if I get there early enough that it's not awkward for them to hang back to make sure my roller bag is the one on the bottom haha.

shush you.

Well, I would like to nominate this guy Donald John Trump for saying pilots are too stupid and that's why planes have been crashing.

Exclamation

Read the tweet VERY carefully. The first part is sarcastic. I think Trump is saying he wants real pilots, not computers and seat meat.

lol, you are right. He is saying that good pilots, not more automation, is needed.


Trump just trolled a bunch of snowflakes.
