How can you trust a Pilot and accept his chosen career? …You really can you know!

February 15, 2011

I included the above picture to demonstrate the ways that one individual can be viewed stereotypically by a number of different people and perspectives. How we perceive others is subjective, that is to say that thoughts are not facts. I often receive emails or blog comments, rants and pleas for help from pilot wives and […]

“How to get a Married Pilot to Cheat”… Are you freaking serious?

January 14, 2011

I have bigger fish to fry right now than to worry about whether my pilot is trustworthy… But this has really annoyed me (you’ll see soon enough). Just for the record. I couldn’t feel more loved than I do right now. Bf is being SO AMAZING and is being incredibly supportive towards me in the […]

How to avoid falling down negative (emotional) Pilot Wife/girlfriend rabbit holes…

September 17, 2010

I have to say, that I cant remember ever feeling as accepting and at peace with my life as it is as I feel at the moment… That is not to say my life is picture perfect; but simply that I am living in the moment and accepting the things I cannot change.  I downloaded […]

Pilot Reduced Nightmares

July 17, 2010

Last night, I went to bed restless. I am not sure why. I struggled to get to sleep, probably because I was up too late on my new MacBook pro.  Bf rang me, and we chatted at about 1am, he was just about to go out to dinner after a hard afternoon’s shopping.  He hired […]

Hope prevails

July 15, 2010

Bf has just left today on his first trip (without me) since he got stuck away in the volcanic ash cloud that put a 12 day spanner in the works a few months back!  I actually don’t mind this one at all.  I dont mean that to sound bad, I miss him, but in a […]

Back on track

July 1, 2010

Things are looking up a little since my last post.  We just got back from one of Bf’s work trips (which I will write about in my next entry) and I was offered a new job that I was called about by a recruitment consultant about… I posted my CV on Monster aaaaaaaaages ago, and […]

Pilot Partner Friends

December 3, 2009

Bf is away all week this week on a long-haul trip, and I’m horriribly ill with a chronic condition that I have which has flared up. I’m on nasty medication that’s making me sick and my mum couldn’t come until late yesterday afternoon… These things have a knack of happening when Bf is away, sods […]

Breaking the airline pilot stereotype, dispelling the myth.

February 1, 2009

Well, Bf has left today. He was supposed to leave yesterday, to stay at a hotel elsewhere in the UK (far away); so that he could fly today from there.  Thankfully, they transferred him to a flight going to the same destination from his base airport instead.  I’m really going to miss him more than usual […]

New Virgin Atlantic Advert. There are TWO pilots on the plane, damn it!

January 18, 2009

If you’re in the UK, you probably wont fail to notice the new Virgin Atlantic advert.  I’m really in two minds about it. I love the Frankie goes to Hollywood track, and all the 80’s references; but as for all the rest of the kitch, stereotype cliche’s. PLEASE!? Firstly, as Flying High said in her […]
