In today’s world that’s never going to happen, so can we shut down these other discrimitory groups and just hire the most qualified? Is that so hard to do? Apparently it is and it’s very sad.
I would join such an organization just to trigger the snowflakes.

I agree. Reverse discrimination is simply discrimination.

I have seen less than qualified persons get hired. Typically they volunteer the information that got them hired (in their opinion).

I don't see the logic in hiring a new first officer out of the regionals who hasn't even upgraded yet while we have many regional Captains with impeccable records who haven't even gotten an interview.

I see it on here all the time. person states his background and some of his credentials and then I wonder how in the heck did bubba get hired, he didn't have one quarter of the other guys creds.

Discrimination is still alive and well.

If those silly job fairs are just about making money, then stop feeding the machine, and it goes away. Then, perhaps we can have a level playing field with no one getting "points" for attending.

One of my favorites was "I was the president of the Houston Women's Chapter of Women In Aviation."

Nice story. If you have to ask how to spell some of the more popular NY area fixes, you haven't paid any dues.

Just my opinion.

Just my opinion.

You have REALLY paid them when you still have all the VOR frequencies memorized.

I never flew to NY until 2 years ago, so I guess you can put me in the category of “non-dues payer”.

rnav arrivals...pfffft, young amateur. It’s when you have the low airway mag courses memorized along with freqs between LNK-DSM-MSP

The “white” and “male” part.
