A Pilot’s ‘unique’ blend of parenting advice (Aviation Humour)

January 12, 2011

I thought I’d post this purely because it brought a smile to my face at a difficult time. It was actually sent to me by my Mum.  I do hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!   Supernanny needs to take tips from this airline pilot’s ‘How To’ Guide on corrective parenting… Most […]

Side-Slippery route to success

December 9, 2009

Bf has just come home from his sim check like a child coming out of a theme park. He’s absolutely on top of the world…  Obviously he had passed with flying colours (pardon the pun), but at the end of their assessment; they were still ‘airborne’ and the training captain told bf to just turn […]

Pam Ann Vs Virgin Atlantic

March 16, 2009

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I just found something that made me laugh sooooo hard that I almost electrocuted myself as I sprayed my laptop with the glass of water I had been drinking! Remember this post where I bitched about the new Virgin ad?  FYI here is the offending advert (please watch it if you’ve not yet seen […]

Come Home, I miss you…

February 2, 2009

Well, I was just watching music on the the television, and Home started to play, by Westlife…  I had never seen the video before and I’m not too ashamed to say that it made me cry like a baby!  I cannot remember the last time I missed Bf  THIS much!  Here is the video. The video sections that […]

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 […]

First Officer Bf, this is ATC, Please stop flying NORDO or I will scramble fighter jets and bring you down!

December 8, 2008

I am a worrier.  I’ll worry about anything.  In fairness to me though, I have experienced a fair share of trauma in life to justify this, and have learned the behaviour from my own mother at a young age.  As you will know if you read my last post, I was feeling a bit down when Bf went […]

Travelling with my pilot on a crew trip

November 15, 2008

Well, as promised, the details of my trip with Bf… As I mentioned previously, my ticket was confirmed. I had wanted to avoid the usual stress of standby (non-rev) tickets.  It actually felt quite strange to be able to check in at a normal time, and not have a lump in my throat, and a queasy […]

Just another day at work

November 8, 2008

Well, we’re off on a trip! I’m so excited. Baby and I had our injections about 4 weeks ago, and we’ve been taking our malaria tablets for the past week; and we actually have confirmed seats this time. We didn’t bother with standby (non-rev travel) this time, because being that it’s a long trip; we […]

Fish or Chicken?

November 5, 2008

Well, Bf got back today. It’s nice to get him back. This trip was only 2 days long from start to finish-so he is shattered. I have to go into the city for a meeting tomorrow. A rare event for me but I’m actually quite looking forward to it. I’m going to meet a group […]

Help!? My pilot is lusting after other women-on planes!

September 21, 2008

I had to write about this. It is kind of funny, but still gets to me a weenie bit! Bf keeps making comments about a few girls he keeps seeing at work occasionally… He comes home and raves about them. In fairness, I think he forgets that he’s already mentioned her/them… But then he’ll come home and tell […]
