Plus ca change, plus ca la meme chose….
So, I just want to put the word out there – if you’re a girl and you want to pursue a career as a pilot, you have to expect that some people have opinions against that, saying weird stuff like (and I’ve heard this myself, no imagination necessary) “You are going to pass your check rides easily because you’re a girl” “Check airmen will only look at your boobs, not your flying skills!” (WHAT?) and “Girls don’t have what it takes to become a pilot”
WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. Wrong, in all ways. I’m actually surprised there are opinions like these out there, still, in the 21st century. But then again, there are people out there who wants laws regulating how many percent women are on the ballot for the election, who many women in an executive board, etc.
I oppose those types of regulations. Those in favor of such legislation…
