I am a Commercial Airline Pilot - AMA
So lately I've been seeing a lot of Reddit-rip articles about all the things people hate about air travel, airplanes, etc. A lot of the frustration I saw was about stuff that may be either misunderstood or that we don't have any control over.
In an effort to continue educating the public about the cool and mysterious world of commercial aviation, I ran an different AMA that yielded some interesting questions that I enjoyed answering (to the best of my ability). It was fun so I figured I'd see if there were any more questions out there that I can help with.
Trying this again with the verification I missed last time. Short bio, I've been flying since 2004, have two aviation degrees, certified in helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, propeller planes and jets, and have really been enjoying this airline gig for a little over the last two years. Verification - well hello there
Update- Wow, I expected some interest but this blew up bigger than I expected. Sorry if it takes me a minute to respond to your question, as I make this update this thread is at ~1000 comments, most of which are questions. I honestly appreciate everyone's interest and allowing me to share one of my life's passions with you.
