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 […]

Southwest Pilot delayed take off so that passenger could say farewell to his murdered grandson

January 13, 2011

This story has really touched me.  The link is here, but to summarise: one of the Southwest Pilot’s (together with a ticketing agent) held up the departure of a flight so that a passenger wouldn’t miss his chance to say goodbye to his poor murdered grandson who’s little body was about to be taken to […]

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 […]

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 […]

This SUCKS!

February 4, 2009

So Bf’s flight is already delayed by 6 hours; it’s not lookig so good for our 5 year anniversary dinner reservation.  I feel ill, and right now I am cursing his sodding job.

Skype is a gift from God in a ‘pilot relationship’!

February 4, 2009

Well, today wasn’t too bad. I didn’t even attempt to go to bed until about 3:30am, whenBf Skype’d me after he got back from eating. I had taken my laptop up to bed with me and we talked on web-cam for about twenty minutes.  He suggested I go to sleep, as he knew how late it was, but I […]

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 […]
